Vintage Audubon Little Screech Owl Litograph - 14x17 from the 1960s Audubon Folio
Screech owls are friends to gardeners big and small since they help keep little critters out of the vegetable patch and the orchard.
This vintage screech owl bird print was part of the vintage Audubon Folio published by Abrams in 1964. The folio contained 30 high-quality lithographs of various Audubon birds including this one of the Little Screech Owl. Beautifully reproduced, this lithograph print contains bright colors and clear crisp imagery along with cursive script in the nameplate. Sized at 14" inches x17" inches it makes quite a lovely statement either framed and hanging on a wall or left as is propped up on a shelf or mantel.
If you are unfamiliar with his work and this distinctive collection, between the years of 1827-1838, John James Audubon (1785-1851), the world's most famous bird painter, published a series of drawings of over 400 bird species depicted in their natural habitats. Capturing not only the physical characteristics of each bird but also their personality, Audubon's interpretations were nothing but extraordinary then and have remained, over the course of 200 years, equally as enchanting as when they originally debuted.
Long known as the symbol of wisdom, owls are great mascots of the kitchen. We like to tuck them into our cookbook area to inspire curiosity. This trio would also feel right at home in your mudroom, garden shed or solarium where they can keep track of all the creatures that come and go.
