AMERICAN TULIP TREE - Liriodendron tulipifera

The surviving original watercolour, painted by Audubon, is little more than a quick sketch whose colours have since faded or changed beyond recognition, the result of Audubon's use of low cost organic dyes and inks. It is amazing how Robert Havell was able to take this very rough painting, that provided little more than the general composition and character of the birds and from it produce a beautifully detailed and accurate rendering of the birds, the flowers and the foliage. Yet, as always,  Audubon takes all the credit !
