The Toledo Museum of Art will present “Rare and Wondrous: Birds in Art and Culture 1620-1820” from April 24 to July 25. 

The exhibition, curated by TMA’s Head of Interpretive Projects and Managing Editor Paula Reich, will showcase the Museum’s recent acquisition of the important six-volume series “Ornithologie,” written by Mathurin-Jacques Brisson, illustrated by François-Nicolas Martinet and published in 1760.

“Rare and Wondrous” will also feature paintings, prints and decorative arts from TMA’s collection, as well as select loans of significant prints and illustrated books from the Yale Center for British Art, the University of Michigan Museums Library and Special Collections, and the Bowling Green State University Libraries Center for Archival Collections.

This is the fifth in a series of bird-themed exhibitions that are timed to coincide with the Biggest Week in American Birding Festival that traditionally takes place in the Toledo area each spring.
