The Art of Science
The Art of Science presents the best of Museum Victoria's remarkable collection of natural history artworks, proving that art and science have always been bedfellows. Each has contributed to the understanding and classification of animals that underpins modern zoology.
The book opens with the 'paper museums' of the 17th and 18th centuries, stunning collections of the bizarre and fabulous. In the contemporary museum, art and science still work hand in glove, from the paleo-artistry of Peter Trusler to the amazing microscopic world revealed by new imaging technology.
The Art of Science is a unique collection of exquisite images that will enrich our understanding of the history of art and science, the natural world, and the miracle of human perception.
