Maria Sibylla Merian, A Passion for Plants and Insects - Livestream


Join us for this illustrated lecture given by Catherine Watters in honor of our bug-themed month of June.

The artist and scientist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) was born in Frankfurt, Germany, into a middle-class family of publishers and artists. At the age of fifty-two, Merian traveled with her younger daughter to Suriname, a Dutch territory in South America, to paint its exotic insects and their host plants. She was an adventurous woman way ahead of her time, whose amazing career as an artist, writer and teacher revolutionized botany and zoology.
