Maria Sibylla Merian was the first artist ever to show
species in their native environments. She traveled to South
America with her teenage daughter to paint them from life. Each of
the insects is shown on the plant that provides its most frequent

with foliage, flowers and fruit. Merian set the standard for the
many botanical and zoological artists who followed. Thus, the
title has great history value.
The most amazing aspect of these superb paintings is
that they were created over 300 years ago. Since then, they
have never been surpassed in beauty nor scientific accuracy.
Merian's masterpieces are exhibited in museums
worldwide. She is even the subject of a permanent exhibit at
the National Museum of Women in the Arts, located in Washington,
D.C. This poster faithfully reproduces nine of her most
beautiful paintings, making it highly desirable because of its art
