Biographical Note:

"Athos Menaboni (1895–1990) was an Italian-born artist who arrived in Georgia in the late 1920s. His early career focused primarily on corporate projects, including the creation of murals for clients in Atlanta, before he turned to painting birds from life, usually in pairs and in their natural habitats. Today Menaboni is best known for his numerous paintings of more than 150 different species of birds native to the Atlanta region."
