Audubon Barn Owl Art Print - Vintage Art Print - Nature Art - Bird Painting - Nature Print - Owl Decor - Bird Art - Old Maps and Prints - from $39

Behold John James Audubon's "Barn Owl", an engraving and hand colored auquatint from the Birds of America, Plate 171, created in 1833.

In an excerpt from Audubon's writings he describes the barn owl as such; "When on the round, this Owl moves by sidelong leaps, with the body much inclined downwards. If wounded in the wing, it yet frequently escapes through the celerity of its motions. Its hearing is extremely acute, and as it marks your approach, instead of throwing itself into an attitude of defence, as Hawks are wont to do, it instantly swells out its plumage, extends its wings and tail, hisses, and clacks its mandibles with force and rapidity. If seized in the hand, it bites and scratches, inflicting deep wounds with its bill and claws."

The image has been digitally retouched and repaired as necessary, while leaving the foxing, wear, and creases that lend to the intrigue of these old works. This giclée quality art is printed on heavyweight matte archival/acid-free museum quality stock with lightfast inks rated 100+ years. No watermark will appear on your print. The artwork is printed with a surrounding white margin (included in print size) to aid in framing/matting the print. Your purchase will ship priority mail (US) in a protective kraft tube made from 70-100% post-consumer recycled content and up to 30% secondary recycled content.

Given the nature of vintage artwork created before the standardization of print and frame sizes, this item may not conform exactly to the dimensions you choose. To allow for the odd sizing of these images they are printed approximately 2 inches smaller than the paper they are on. This way you receive a standard size paper, with a white surrounding border that allows for easy framing, with or without a matte.

Available in:
12" x 18"
24" x 36"
