Audubon "Birds of America"

Bobwhite & Red Shouldered Hawk  
Print Size 19.5 x 27 inches

Bobwhite & Red-Shouldered Hawk – Plate Reference #76
“I have represented a group of Partridges attacked by a Hawk. The different attitudes exhibited by the former cannot fail to give you a lively idea of the terror and confusion, which prevail on such occasions.” This painting, one of the most dramatic and ambitious Audubon attempted for The Birds of America, contains eighteen bobwhites-male (with white throats), females, and young. Attacking the covey is a young red-shouldered hawk. The blades of grass in the foreground were painted separately, then cut out and pasted in position. Oil paint has been used in the foreground; the rest is a combination of water colour and pastel and dates from about 1825.
