The Painted Bird: Louis Agassiz Fuertes
At the Field Museum of Natural History through January 4, 2009.

Twenty-six watercolors portray rare bird species and their spirited personalities. Louis Agassiz Fuertes, America's foremost bird artist of his time, is featured in works from his final excursion, the Field-sponsored 1926 Abyssinian Expedition to gather never-before-seen specimens for the museum's collections. Along with the exquisite watercolors are supporting materials relating them to the study skins collected, as well as press materials and flyers from the expedition itself. An excellent exhibit, small, but packed with content and interest. Free with general museum admission. At the Field Museum through January 4.
