"Audubon, Then and Now" opens at Biggs Museum

Aug 7, 2018

From now through November 25th, the Biggs Museum in Dover is hosting an exhibition of over 50 original etchings and lithographs of well-known artist and naturalist John James Audubon.


The exhibit is called ‘Audubon, Then and Now.’

Ryan Grover is the curator at the Biggs Museum.

“We borrowed 25 images, original engravings by Audubon from Winterthur Museum and then we borrowed another 25 mammal prints from the publication called the Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, also by Audubon, that came from the Huntsville Museum of Art in Huntsville, Alabama, and we put them together,” Grover said.

Grover says Audubon’s works are being displayed alongside those of contemporary artists from America and the United Kingdom who have been influenced by Audubon's animal studies.
