This magnificent hand pulled lithographic reproduction of the American Flamingo by John James Audubon is from an exhibition at the American Cultural Center in Paris in 1960. The difference between this vintage print and any other digital reproduction is truly striking. One can see immediately the difference between the pure pigment of lithography and the messiness of newer ink jet or digital reproductions.
The American Flamingo is one of John James Audubon’s most iconic and recognizable images. Bold and beautiful. John James Audubon saw Flamingos during a trip to the Florida Keys in the 1830’s. It was from this experience that he was inspired to include this species in his “Birds of America”.
