Fuertes at Johnson Museum
Recently I visited the Johnson Art Museum on the Cornell University campus. I had arranged to view the Fuertes collection housed there. Louis Agassiz Fuertes, an Ithaca native was the best bird artist who ever attempted the craft. Many share this opinion and his name is very commonly listed as a major influence on the work of most contemporary bird artists. Here is one of the Johnson Museum pieces I enjoyed the most.
