American Bison (or Buffalo)
Whitney Purchase Fund
This print of the bison exhibited the male, female and young to show the different characteristics. Although credited to John James Audubon, the stiffness of the modeling indicates that John Woodhouse Audubon (1812-1862), son of John James Audubon, more likely was the artist who drew it for publication. The younger Audubon drew approximately half of the plates in The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America.
