T-Shirt Tuesday: 3x Fuertes

This weeks featured t-shirts are in honor of a 2010 exhibit at the New York State Museum: Birds of New York and the Paintings of Louis Agassiz Fuertes. According to the website of the museum:

This exhibition commemorates the 100th anniversary of the publication of Birds of New York, one of the most popular books issued in the State Museum’s history. The exhibition features dozens of original watercolors made for the book by famed bird artist Louis Agassiz Fuertes, as well as the first edition of Birds of New York, a portfolio of prints, and specimens from the Museum’s ornithology collection.

Fuertes was an ornithologist and artist, active from about 1894 until his death in 1927. He illustrated over 60 books and hundreds of articles. The exhibition at the New York State Museum honors the 100th anniversary of Elon Howard Eaton's Birds of New York, which was illustrated by Fuertes.
