Exhibition – The Treasury Collection: Works by Maria Sibylla Merian

31 March to 18 June 2017 Cromhouthuis, Amsterdam

The Cromhouthuis is currently hosting an exhibition of the paintings and illustrations of the naturalist and artist Maria Sibylla Merian. In her research as a naturalist, Merian examined caterpillars, butterflies, and other insects in their natural environment (f.e. in Surinam), and, as a result, produced works that did not just make a contribution to science, but also to art.
