The Art of Science

Remarkable natural history illustrations from Museum Victoria

By John Kean

The Art of Science presents the best of Museum Victoria's remarkable collection of natural history artworks, proving that art and science have always been bedfellows. Each has contributed to the understanding and classification of animals that underpins modern zoology.

In the contemporary museum, art and science still work hand in glove, from the palaeo-artistry of Peter Trusler to the amazing microscopic world revealed by new imaging technology.

The Art of Science is a unique collection of exquisite images that will enrich our understanding of the history of art and science, the natural world, and the miracle of human perception.
