Summary

Haeckel was a German Biologist, Naturalist and Artist who discovered and named thousands of new species. In 1899 he began to publish a series of extraordinary images that changed the way we viewed the relationship between Art and Science. 100 of his images were put together to create 10 volumes of Art Forms of Nature.

Many of the organisms included within these collections were first described and classified by Haeckel himself. This stunning combination remains, to this day, an astounding record of life on earth. The subjects of each lithographic plate were carefully selected so that they would encapsulate the organisation of organisms.

Haeckel was no stay at home biologist. Throughout his lengthy career he discovered 150 new species of simple organisms called Radiolarians. Between 1859 and 1887 he described several thousand more new species. He also coined many biological terms that we use today – phylogeny, phylum and stem cell – the most notable being the word ecology.

These images have been reproduced with the kind permission of the ZSL (Zoological Society of London) Library, which houses a wide range of modern and historic books on the subjects of animals and their conservation, along with a huge catalogue of journals and magazines, the ZSL archives, zoo-related ephemera and unique artworks.

Founded in 1826, ZSL is an international scientific, conservation and educational charity whose mission is to promote and achieve the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats.

Admission to the gallery is free as you do not need to enter the aquarium.
