We are thrilled to offer prints from the exceptional work, Kunstformen der Natur (Art Forms in Nature), by Ernst Heinrich Haeckel (1834-1919), a German physician, biologist, and nature philosopher. He began his academic career in 1862 as a biologist and professor of zoology at the University in Jena, where he taught and conducted research until 1909.
During his tenure at Jena, he devoted time to traveling as a field naturalist, collecting specimens along the way. Kunstformen der Natur is widely considered the synthesis of Haeckel’s work and his endless fascination with life forms on earth. Published as booklets with 10 illustrations each from 1899-1904, it is considered by many to be his greatest work.
