John James Audubon is best known for his detailed drawings of bird species. However, in 1843 Audubon embarked on an exhibition to complete a thorough survey of North American mammals. He and his son John W. Audubon worked together and produced the series The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America from 1845-1848, just three years before the senior Audubon's death. The lithographs were engraved and hand colored by J.T. Bowen, a leading Philadelphia printmaker.
