CDR-1124: SR-Set: Natural History Images

Scholars Resource presents a group of elegant studies depicting flowering plants and birds, representing a multicultural and interdisciplinary range from ancient Egypt, to China and Japan, to Europe and America. These striking studies of single blossoms, improbable bouquets and a variety of bird species follow the tradition set by Carl Linnaeus to ensure documentation of these plants and animals against their possible demise. From Dürer’s study of humble wildflowers to the regal roses of Redouté, these works include fifteenth century medicinal herbs of Robinet Testard, birds of John James Audubon, Dutch flower pieces of Rachel Ruysch, exotic plant portraits of Martin Johnson Heade, and the resplendent sunflowers of Vincent Van Gogh, among others. (updated Nov. 2013). Please note: Academic Image Sets are offered to show the breadth of our collections. You do not need to order an entire set; you can also order individual images from each Set.
