“A NATURALIST’S SOJOURN IN ALABAMA” Made possible by Alabama Audubon

PRINTS BY PHILIP HENRY GOSSE
On display: August 5 – October 29, 2022

Take a journey back in time to 1830s Alabama with English naturalist Philip Henry Gosse, and imagine a world before field guides or widespread knowledge of our state’s beautiful flora and fauna. In his intricate, hand-painted illustrations of moths, butterflies, and various other insects, Gosse captured the essence of many of our most beloved native plants and insects.
