Abstract:
Born in San Remo, Italy, in 1892, Dorothy Doughty grew up to paint porcelain birds. Each bird is a precise replica of a living species and is presented with flowers or plants representative of its natural habitat. One of only twenty-two complete collections of these birds is housed at Reynolda House in Winston-Salem. This seventy-five-piece collection was dedicated on April 10, 1970, by the Doughty Collection of American Birds. It is the only complete Doughty collection open for public viewing.
