The Art of British Natural History

For centuries the natural life of the British Isles has captured the imagination of both artists and scientists.


This book explores the many different ways in which Britain’s flora and fauna have been documented, from engravings and watercolours to ink and charcoal drawings.


Including over 100 specially selected artworks from the collections in the Natural History Museum’s Library and Archives, this book reveals the entwined roles of art and history in the advancement of scientific knowledge
