In 1964, Ede became the first living artist to be honoured with a one man show at the National Collection of Fine Arts, Washington D.C. The event was sponsored by the British Embassy, the English Speaking Union and the National Audubon Society.
The common nightingale or simply nightingale, also known as rufous nightingale, is a small passerine bird best known for its powerful and beautiful song. It was formerly classed as a member of the thrush family, but is now more generally considered to be an Old World flycatcher.
"Nightingale" is derived from "night", and the Old English galan, "to sing".
