Frequently revered as a "20th-century Audubon," John A. Ruthven was inspired by his renowned predecessor. Ruthven conducted thorough research of his subjects prior to constructing intricate sketches and painstakingly crafting his artwork.
Whether working in delicate watercolor or bold acrylics, he long combined art and conservation, even receiving the National Medal of Arts—the highest honor given to artists by the United States government—for his work as an artist and naturalist. These paintings offer a birder’s view through the 12 months of the year. May they inspire you to share Ruthven’s awe and delight in your own surroundings.
