Article description

Article description

Original copper engraving finely hand colored. Published in Maria Sibylla Merian's famous series 'De Europische Insecten', a compilation of the ‚Raupenbuch' and the ‚Neuen Blumenbuch'. In total 184 different engravings were published, which are showing different, carefully hand coloured illustrations of insects in combination with plants. Each of these engravings shows mostly a scene of a decorative flower and various counterpillars with their matching butterflies. The plates were engraved after Maria Sybilla Merian's own observations and were originally published first in her ‚Raupenbuch' between 1679 and 1717.
