John James Audubon aquatint makes $75,000 at Arader Galleries

A colour aquatint of a wild turkey from John James Audubon's Birds of America realised $75,000 at Arader Galleries' January 25 auction in New York.

The Naturalism in the Time of Audubon auction included a range of hand coloured engravings from the artist's 19th century magnum opus.
