    Description

    John James Audubon. Original Folio Hand-Colored Lithograph, American Cross Fox. Plate VI from The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America. Printed and colored by J.T. Bowen, Philadelphia, 1843 Measures. 21 x 27-3/4 inches (53.3 x 70.5 cm) (sheet). Framed.

    Viviparous Quadrupeds was a 150 folio-plate undertaking by John James Audubon and his son, John Woodhouse Audubon. While many of the later prints were drawn by Audubon's son, as his health was declining, this one is by John James Audubon.

    The animal prints in Viviparous Quadrupeds are considered the finest published in America.
