If you haven’t seen Krannert Art Museum‘s “Coveting Nature’ exhibit, you have just a few more weeks to do so. On display since August, the exhibit features more than a dozen prints and illustrations from antique botany and scientific works from the 16th-19th centuries. The event will close on December 22.
There is book from 1665 on display of “Mocrographia” which is the first English publication that shows observations made under a microscope. There is also a still-life paining by Anna Ruysch from the 1690s.
