George Miksch Sutton is one of the best known and most beloved bird artists of the twentieth century. This book presents thirty-five paintings of downy chicks, nestlings, and fledglings painted from life by Sutton. The exquisite water-colors, housed in the Field Museum of Natural History, span three decades and depict nineteen species of North American birds. Many of the paintings are reproduced here for the first time. In his introduction to the collection, ornithologist Paul Johnsgard discusses Sutton’s contributions to bird art and to ornithology. And in essays accompanying the paintings, Johnsgard describes his and Sutton’s personal encounters with the birds.
