This 2D traveling exhibition highlights the integral role scientific illustration has played in undersea exploration and discovery.
Beginning some 400 years ago, European voyages of discovery began mapping the globe and documenting newly-acquired knowledge of ocean life in illustrated books, showcasing images that communicate the anatomy, life cycles, habits—and sheer beauty—of an astonishing diversity of newfound marine species.
Opulent Oceans features 46 exquisite, large-format reproductions of notable historic illustrations from 33 rare and beautifully illustrated scientific works from the American Museum of Natural History Library’s Rare Book collection.
