John James Audubon’s magnum opus, The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America published between 1845 and 1848 are the finest images of North American animals ever made. The Museum of the Southwest’s collection of Audubon’s work is an important holding. Like his Birds of America, the Quadrupeds show his skills as an artist, observer and interpreter of nature. The exhibit included depictions of wild cats, bears, wolves, antelopes and many others.
