"The artist and scientist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) was born in Frankfurt, Germany, into a middle-class family of publishers and artists. With her meticulous depictions of insect metamorphosis, she raised the standards of natural history illustration and helped give birth to the field of entomology. This book reproduces vivid color details of sixteen plates from the Getty's copy, is a vibrant encapsulation of Merian's book and features an engaging essay on Merian's life and work as well as an insect and plant identification guide."--[product description]

Maria Sibylla Merian & daughters : women of art and science by Ella Reitsma( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With a single hair of the brush, Maria Sibylla Merian could convey the delicate wings of a butterfly, the minute bristles on a caterpillar, or a gleaming pupa with the insect just emerging. No other artist of her day could rival the brilliance and accuracy of her work. Queen Elizabeth II and the British Museum in London own many splendid works - reproduced in this book - by this German artist. Born in 1647 in Frankfurt, then the center of the publishing trade, Merian spent more than twenty-five years of her life in Amsterdam, where she died in 1717. Acknowledged and respected by artists and scientists alike, Maria Sibylla was a strong-minded, adventurous woman who, at the age of fifty-two, traveled to Suriname with her younger daughter to observe and draw insects, reptiles, and amphibians." "Ella Reitsma is the first to endeavour to distinguish between the hands of Maria Sibylla and her two daughters, Johanna Helena and Dorothea Maria. The author's research suggests that the two young women collaborated closely with their mother in the family business. Ella Reitsma has identified some of Merian's previously unknown contacts and connections, discovered new drawings, and unearthed new biographical information. The book, a lively and very readable blend of art journalism and science, is being published in conjunction with an exhibition of the work of Merian and her daughters at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles."--BOOK JACKET

Before Darwin, before Audubon, before Gilbert White, there was Merian. An artist turned naturalist, known for her botanical illustrations, Maria Sybilla Merian was born in Germany just sixteen years after Galileo proclaimed that the earth orbited the sun. But at the age of fifty she sailed from Europe to the New World on a solo scientific expedition to study insect metamorphosis - an unheard-of journey for any naturalist at that time, much less an unaccompanied woman. When she returned she produced a book that secured her reputation, only to have it savaged in the nineteenth century by scienti
