Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007)
We Think the World of Birds
With dazzling color and barely contained energy, Charley Harper’s We Think the World of Birds shows all the birds that live within Sapsucker Woods in Ithaca, New York. Hey wait a minute, you say, the Florida scrub-jay doesn’t live in New York! Okay, so Harper also included a few birds of special significance to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, for whom this painting was commissioned. Not only does the artwork celebrate their feathered friends but each bird depicted represents a conservation initiative or research program of the Lab’s scientists.
The Lab truly does think the world of birds, as did Harper, a longtime conservationist. In fact, for this work he reimagined the “world” in the shape of a bird’s egg rather than a sphere—a fun bit of artistic license, we think. From his early days on a West Virginia farm through his career as a midcentury modernist, Harper found great joy in depicting birds and critters of the woods and beyond.

We absolutely encourage the process of pre-ordering "Coming Soon" items, because it hedges your bet.
You have a better chance of actually getting an item if you pre-order it now. (First come, first served - some exceptions apply.) Our systems automatically fill retail orders on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis (some exceptions apply).
We don't "allocate" products. (Allocate is a dirty word in this industry that means shipping products to other people before we ship to you... regardless of when you or they ordered.) If you ordered an item when it was first posted on our website, you are FAR more likely to receive it than if you order the same item today.
And if you wait until a later date to order the item, you might never get it at all. That's because your fellow collectors and gift purchasers have pre-ordered every single piece of an item we might be getting. (This is called "PRE-SOLD OUT.") Don't let that happen to you! Don't be left out! Pre-order now!
