Rex Brasher was born in 1869 in Brooklyn, New York. Rex became passionate about birds at an early age, due to the influence of his father, an avid naturalist and bird taxidermist. His father had gone to John James Audubon to discuss birds, only to be snubbed. In 1878, at the age of eight, Brasher decided to paint all the birds of North America, and to do it better than Audubon. He passed away in 1960. He was 91 years of age.
