John James Audubon's story is dramatic and surprising. He was not born in America, but saw more of the North American continent than virtually anyone alive. His growing apprehension about the destruction of nature became his prophecy. As an artist and naturalist his achievements were monumental. John James Audubon: Drawn from Nature creates a meaningful portrait of Art and Science in the first decades of the 19th century.

I had no idea the namesake of the Audubon Society had such a history. I can only hope the right people make his life into a major release movie someday .

For myself, it's difficult to find fault with PBS' American Masters series and this installment only affirms this belief. The life and career of John James Audubon feels astounding to me now! And makes me want to inquire further. My only grievance with this film is the wish for more time. To have had it cover more of the intricacies mentioned would have been a gift.
