      EVENT DETAILS
      BGHG Annual Lecture 2019

      Clare Ford Wille will talk on  MARIA SIBYLLA MERIAN 1647-1717: Artist and Botanist who published her ground-breaking two volume study of Caterpillars, Their Wondrous Transformation and Peculiar Nourishment from Flowers in 1683, combining scientific study with exquisite illustrations.  In 1699 she travelled to the Dutch Colony of Suriname in South America in order to study that country's butterflies and the result of her outstanding observations and paintings was Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium, in which some of the first examples of serious botanical illustration combining science and art can be seen.  Clare will explore the life and work of this fascinating woman.
