Commentaires :
Ce catalogue en anglais est édité à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée au Fitzwilliam Museum de Cambridge, du 16 juin au 4 octobre 2009.

Charles Darwin's theories have had a profound influence on research in biology and ecology. But they also inspired many nineteenth-century artists, providing insights into the dynamic workings of nature and our relationship to animals - spawning new ideas about art itself and the meaning of beauty. this was a two-way process. Darwin himself - a keen and brilliant observer of nature - was influenced not just by natural history illustrations but by the imaginative themes of contemporary painters.

This lavishly illustrated book is the first to explore Darwin's links with artistic traditions and his impact on the visual arts in Europe and America in the nineteenth century. Bringing together art and science in a completely original way, it sets works by major artists such as Church, Landseer, Heade, Redon, CĂ©zanne and Monet in a fresh and illuminating context. In grand landscape painting and dioramas, in imaginary scenes of prehistory and early human life, in depictions of exotic birds and of life in the wild, Darwin's sense of the interplay of all living things and of the beauties of colour and form in nature proved vital.
