Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in England
Amazing Rare Things: The Art of Natural History in the Age of Discovery



Amazing Rare Things: The Art of Natural History in the Age of Discovery
ENGLAND
LONDON  •  The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace  •  Ongoing
 
 

The exhibition is by Sir David Attenborough, and brings together the works of four artists and a collector who have shaped our knowledge of the world around us: Leonardo da Vinci, Cassiano dal Pozzo, Alexander Marshal, Maria Sibylla Merian and Mark Catesby.

Many of the plants and animals represented in the exhibition were then barely known in Europe.  Today some are commonplace, while others are extinct.
