|Discover the wonders of the natural world in this stunning exhibition of exquisite drawings inspired by the Wunderkammer as Keeler-Milne explores the beauty or our world. |
The culture of collecting, classifying and drawing natural specimens predates the naming of disciplines such as biology, science or art.
During the Renaissance specimens were assembled into rooms that were designed to evoke the spectacle and marvel of the natural world.
These designated spaces were called wonder-rooms (Wunderkammer) or cabinets of curiosities.
