The Origins of the World - The Invention of Nature in the 19th Century - Alphabet
The 19th century saw an unprecedented development of the natural sciences. The questioning of origins, with Darwin's theories, redefined man's place in nature, his links with animals and his own animality in a world now understood as an ecosystem, an upheaval that was not without profoundly influencing artists.
From "Noah's Ark" to "Zoo", from "Cuvier" to "Lamarck", from "Aquarium" to "Pterodactyl", this work, through nearly fifty key words, allows us to understand the main milestones of these scientific discoveries and compares them to their parallel in the imagination of artists.
