The ornithologist John James Audubon is best remembered for his influential book The Birds of America, which included over 400 beautiful artworks. This image is based on a collage created by Lady Hertford, who owned Temple Newsam House in Leeds, England. Lady Hertford cut the images from Audubon’s book and applied them to the hand-painted Chinese wallpaper in her drawing room. The result was a stunning room filled with a mixture of Audubon’s birds and the original Asian garden birds that featured on the wallpaper. The two birds on the left here are Audubon’s depictions of Columbia Jays, now known as Black-throated Magpie Jays.
