ABOUT THIS COLLECTION  

Before photography, scientific illustrators gave us a visual record of the world’s fascinating forms of flora and fauna. Ernst Haeckel’s (1834-1919) illustrations set the standard for scientific art in the 19th and early 20th centuries. An evolutionary scientist, his most famous publication is the series “Kunstformen Der Natur” (Artforms in Nature) published in 10 installments between 1899 and 1904. This collection offers 10 of the 100 highly detailed drawings of organisms he created for that publication, all of which he had either seen through a microscope or in his research (he discovered, described, and named thousands of new species). The series had an enormous influence on modern perceptions of nature by the arts and sciences.
