Article description

Copper engraving, finely hand colored. A fine engraving from M.S. Merian's classic work. Maria Sybilla Merian, daughter of the German engraver and publisher Matthäus Merian, devoted herself to the study of European insects and their metamorphoses. As a result of the wealth of tropical varieties being brought back by the Dutch West Indies Company, she decided to visit the Dutch colony of Surinam herself to study and paint the insect life there. She sailed with her daughter Dorothea in June 1699 from Amsterdam, and remained in Surinam until 1701. Also Maria Sybilla Merian's elder daughter Johanna went to Surinam to complete her mothers work.
