As you may have concluded from photos of our apartment in prior posts, I love birds. I have framed bird prints and small bird statues all over the apartment.
What I don’t have yet, but absolutely adore, are large-scale framed bird prints. I am especially fond of those by early 19th century ornithologist and painter John James Audubon. Audubon’s detailed illustrations of birds in their natural habitats are absolutely beautiful:
Here are some examples of rooms in which large-scale bird prints (not all of them by Audubon) are on display:
The large prints are perfect for filling the space above a sofa, as in the two photos below:
They also help to fill hallway space splendidly:
In the two rooms pictured below, the bird prints are reproductions of illustrations done by a 17th century Swedish ornithologist, named Olof Runback. The prints can be purchased at Ornis Gallery.
Audubon reproductions can be purchased inexpensively in any size from Art.com.
What do you think of all these birds?
