The current volume contains a large sampling of her work in a beautifully produced volume published by Taschen. Katharina Schmidt Loske provides an excellent sketch of Merian's life and commentary on each one of the plates. I recommend this beautiful volume to anyone interested in the history of natural science, art, or the historical context. It is one of the best publications of its kind.
to South America with one of her daughters in the late 1600 to 1700's. She did not catch butterflies and stick them
with a pin to a board, rather watched the caterpillar to see what it would become. Patiently watched the spinning
of the cocoon and then waited for the miracle. Her illustrations are amazing. This is a treasure.
