Within Drayton Hall’s museum collection are 21 watercolors painted c. 1733 by George Edwards, a British naturalist who is considered the father of British ornithology. These remarkable paintings were acquired by John Drayton (1715-1779) prior to Drayton Hall’s construction beginning in 1738, and serve as powerful artifacts illustrating his intellectual pursuits in natural history, both within and beyond colonial South Carolina.
