"John James Audubon (April 26, 1785 – January 27, 1851) was a French-American ornithologist, naturalist, hunter, and painter.  He painted, organized and described the birds of North America in a form far superior to what had gone before.  In his outsize personality and achievements, he seemed to represent the new American nation of the United States.  Audubon developed his own methods for drawing birds.  First, he killed them using fine shot.  He then used wires to prop them into a natural position, unlike the common method of many ornithologists, who prepared and stuffed the specimens into a rigid pose.  When working on a major specimen like an eagle, he would spend up to four 15-hour days, preparing, studying and drawing it.  [51] His paintings of birds are set true-to-life in their natural habitat.  He often portrayed them as if caught in motion, especially feeding or hunting.  This was in stark contrast to the stiff representations of birds by his contemporaries, such as Alexander Wilson.  Audubon based his paintings on his extensive field observations".
