Remembering Rex Brasher: Painter of Birds
Celebrate a truly wonderful, but relatively unknown avian artist, Rex Brasher. Based in Kent, CT, Rex was a prolific painter who produced 875 original watercolors depicting 1200 species/subspecies of North American birds. In fact, Brasher painted (from live observation!) more than twice as many birds as his better-known predecessor, John James Audubon.
