"Francis Lee Jaques: Artist and Naturalist" was an exhibition featuring the work of Francis Lee Jaques. Jaques, who painted the backgrounds of many dioramas at the Museum, was among the first to recognize the importance of depicting animals in their natural environment. He traveled the world sketching and painting scenes from nature. The exhibition included 50 sketches, scratchboard drawings and paintings of such subjects as geese winging over a prairie and sea lions on the Peruvian coast. The exhibit was organized by the Bell Museum of Natural History at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and coincided with the Centennial Meeting of the American Ornithologists Union (AOU). The exhibition was on view in the Akeley Gallery of the American Museum of Natural History from September 24, 1983 through January 8, 1984.
