The Origins of the World - The Invention of Nature in the 19th Century - Exhibition catalogue
The 19th century saw an unprecedented development of the natural sciences. While the great voyages of exploration bear witness to the diversity of the world and the variety of living species, geology revealed the unimaginable antiquity of the earth, and the study of fossils revealed the beginnings of life and the existence of extinct species, including dinosaurs.
At the crossroads of science and art, this book compares the main milestones of scientific discoveries with their parallels in the imagination.
