Ernst Haeckel - Art Forms in Nature
Title: Ernst Haeckel - Art Forms in Nature
Creator: Weismann, Ann <Exhibition Curator>
Publisher: MBLWHOI = Marine Biological Laboratory Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution / Library
Abstract: Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919) was the German scientist who coined the phrase "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny" and the terms "Darwinism" and "ecology." He was first to postulate a "missing link" between ape and man and was proven correct when Java man was found in 1891. A staunch evolutionary biologist, Haeckel put Darwin on the world map. His books and monographs, placing Darwin in a broad social and philosophical context, were circulated internationally; they outsold On the Origin of Species by a large margin. Haeckel was commonly referred to as "the Darwin of Germany." This exhibition presents a selection of digitized reproductions of the remarkable illustrations in the two volume Art Forms in Nature. They have been culled from the holdings of the rare book collection of the MBLWHOI Library. [Information of the supplier]
