Seba's collection of scenic illustrations was one of the 18th century's greatest natural history achievements. Though scientists of his era often collected natural specimens for research purposes, the Amsterdam-based pharmacist's (1665-1736) collection of animals, plants and insects gained international fame during his lifetime. After decades of collecting, Seba commissioned illustrations of every specimen and arranged the publication of a four-volume catalogue – from strange plants to snakes, frogs, crocodiles, shellfish, corals, birds, and butterflies, as well as fantastic beasts, such as a hydra and a dragon. It was published as "Seba's Cabinet of Natural Curiosities"and was a monumental work filled with fabulous coloured illustrations.
Our fine art prints are inspired by antique illustrations. We make them with superb pigmented inks and heavyweight German fine art paper made from 100% cotton and spring water.
