Athos Menaboni: Six Decades of Painting in Georgia, runs through Jan. 5, 2015, at the Albany Museum of Art, in Albany. www.albanymuseum.com; (229) 439-8400.

An eye for nature

BY RACHEL MILLIN


The Albany Museum of Art continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary with an exhibition by renowned Italian-born artist Athos Menaboni. Athos Menaboni: Six Decades of Painting in Georgia opened last month and will run through Jan. 5. The artist is best known for his numerous paintings of more than 150 different species of birds native to this region.

Menaboni developed a love of nature from his early childhood in the seaport of Livorno, Italy, and later moved to Atlanta, where he lived out the rest of his life. During the 1940s and '50s, he created annual Christmas cards for Robert Woodruff, the president of the Coca-Cola Co. His work appeared in advertisements and magazines, which led to the publication in 1950 of the book "Menaboni's Birds," with illustrations by Menaboni and text by his wife, Sara.

For more information about the exhibit visit, albanymuseum.com or call (229) 439-8400.
