"Nature must be seen first alive, and well studied,
before attempts are made at representing her."

Best known as a painter of birds and most
notably for his series called the Birds
of America. Audubon came to the northern
Kentucky area in 1819, and made many
drawings near this place. it was the force
of circumstances prior to and during his
stay in the Cincinnati- Kentucky area
which converted him from an amateur to
professional artist. He left Cincinnati in
October of 1829 and embarked on his
mammoth project to record the birds of
North America which was first published in
1826. While in Cincinnati Audubon worked
for a time at the Western Museum, which
became the Cincinnati Natural History
Museum. He frequently made drawings of
local birds such as the Cliff Swallow which
appears in the folio Birds of America.
