Louis Agassiz Fuertes.  “Solitary Vireo.”  From Fish and Game of New York State

New York, [1900-1914].  Approximately 5 x 8 (image). Chromolithograph. Very good condition. 

Louis Agassiz Fuertes (1874 – 1927) was an American ornithologist, illustrator and artist from Ithaca, New York and educated at Cornell.  In 1899, he accompanied E. H. Harriman on his famous exploration of the Alaska coastline, the Harriman Alaska Expedition. Following this, Fuertes traveled across much of the United States and to many countries in pursuit of birds, including the Bahamas, Jamaica, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, and Ethiopia. Fuertes collaborated with Frank Chapman, curator of the American Museum of Natural History and noted field guide writer, on many assignments including field research, background dioramas at the museum, and book illustrations.  A book on Fuertes, A Celebration of Birds, The Life and Art of Louis Agassiz Fuertes was written by Robert Peck, and published for the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia.
