Product Description
Ernst Haeckel: Art Forms in Nature 2018 Wall Calendar
An early and vocal supporter of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, German biologist Ernst Haeckel (1834–1919) was trained as a physician and worked as a zoologist. In the hopes of widening the public’s understanding of naturalism, he published Kunstformen der Natur (or Art Forms in Nature) in 1904. The work, equal parts scientific text and artistic endeavor, highlights Haeckel’s particular interest in the symmetries in living forms, especially the skeletal structures of radiolarians, microscopic oceanic organisms. The work became a showpiece in educated households, and its elaborate forms have been called a precursor to art nouveau.

These illustrations are from a copy of Kunstformen der Natur in the Case Book Collection in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress. The Library holds over 162 million items in almost all media and in more than 470 languages.
