Not so mind blowing in these days of high resolution microscopy, but still pretty amazing from a technical drawing viewpoint And interesting aesthetically if you leaf through and the hydra and jellies and pinecones all sort of blur together as form rather than animals.This Dover edition does not reproduce the text. GORGEOUS cannot be beat I heart Ernst Haeckel. Lately, I have been indulging in scientific technical drawingsandI like the discipline in that long forgotten way you feel when you re a hardcore fangirl screaming internally upon seeing something you like It s that bad This was really great, but most importantly it will last for archiving, referencing, modifications, not just a book that ll sit on the shelf once perused all made easy with access to these lithographs P S Probably not as important, but I would have liked in Lately, I have been indulging in scientific technical drawingsandI like the discipline in that long forgotten way you feel when you re a hardcore fangirl screaming internally upon seeing something you like It s that bad This was really great, but most importantly it will last for archiving, referencing, modifications, not just a book that ll sit on the shelf once perused all made easy with access to these lithographs P S Probably not as important, but I would have liked individual lithographs to have been labelled Drawings are lumped into classes on single pages, so you ll get for example one page of various starfishes, but without identification of each one I bet H.R Giger has a copy of this book Old drawings of microbes, animals and such in a very distinct style The microbes and some of the sea creatures have an especially alien look to them There s at least one free digital version and if you insist on a paper copy get something like the Prestel edition so you get the color plates. Every biology student knows Ernst Haeckel as the originator of the Biogenetic Law ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny Haeckel was a passionate student of the evolutionary shaping of biological forms, and Art Forms in Nature captures both his artistic sensibility and the scientific rigor he applied to all his studies First published in , Art Forms in Nature is a glorification of function and form, a demonstration of organic symmetry that has nothing and everything to do with nature as it actually exists Each plate exhibits organisms carefully arranged and exquisitely detailed, a symbiosis between decorative sketches and descriptive observations of nature, as Olaf Breidbach states in his fascinating introductory text The radiolarians, medusae, rotifers, bryozoans, and even frogs and turtles lovingly recreated here are gorgeous and self explanatory, rendered in delicate, filigreed lines, and colored gently with muted green, delicate pink, and sepia Art students will appreciate the designs found in nature scientists will love the evolutionary statement of form inherent in the beautyTherese Littleton ❮Reading❯ ➶ I Blame The Scapegoats Author John O& – Ralphslaurensoutlet.co.uk and Art Forms in Nature captures both his artistic sensibility and the scientific rigor he applied to all his studies First published in ❮PDF❯ ✅ Beneath the Earth Author John Boyne – Ralphslaurensoutlet.co.uk Art Forms in Nature is a glorification of function and form [PDF] ✩ Gagged Author Richard Asplin – Ralphslaurensoutlet.co.uk a demonstration of organic symmetry that has nothing and everything to do with nature as it actually exists Each plate exhibits organisms carefully arranged and exquisitely detailed [PDF / Epub] ✪ Aristocrats ☆ Stella Tillyard – Ralphslaurensoutlet.co.uk a symbiosis between decorative sketches and descriptive observations of nature [BOOKS] ✯ A Dark and Twisted Tide (Lacey Flint, By Sharon J.

representative works of Ernst Haeckel a painter drawer designer born in 1834 in Prussia He dedicated his talent to faithfully reproduce some of the patterns he observed in nature and looking to his works one can only be amazed on how others that call themselves original just copied Mother Nature to create their designs take for example the Faberge s eggs or the Sistine Chapel As the prologue says this book should be read not only with the eyes but also with the ears because by looking at the artworks in sequence one can almost hear the highly distinguishable accords of Ravel s Bolero It starts in a shyly but magnificent manner and finishes with a climax of color and pleasure.There are some works based on corals that remind you immediately of the gene lamps of the oriental tales the reproduction of the ostracionte kafferfishe is so majestic that it resembles some of the decorations in queens and kings crowns There are some pictures of coral skeletons that instantly transport the reader to a somber world and then there is an explosion of color and movement in plant and living coral.There is the muscinae Laubnoose that transports you to the dreamed trip through the rainforest You can almost feel the embrace of nature while looking at it This is a great book to look at in your living room with long time to absorb all that beauty Somehow this didn t wow me as I d expected The material is interesting re art, science, nature, and philosophy Haeckel the zoologist is just as interesting as Haeckel the artist I thought I d adore the prints, but while I enjoyed them, I didn t love them The text accompaniment, appearing early in the book before the many pages of prints, is interesting.I m not sure why I didn t feel amazed by this book I do recommend it to artists, naturalists, scientists, and anyone interested in the natur Somehow this didn t wow me as I d expected The material is interesting re art, science, nature, and philosophy Haeckel the zoologist is just

beimpressed than I was There is a long queue of people who have this on reserve at the library, and the copy I have is almost due, so I can t keep perusing it I have to return it I m not quite interested enough in it to borrow it again and spendtime with it Gorgeous prints, as virtually everyone agrees, but the first of the two introductory essays really fell flat The second essay was moderately interesting Too bad someone like Andrea Wulf didn t write an intro Her chapter on Haeckel in her recent book, A Maz Ing A Stound Ing Do words fail me I fail words I wdn t rate this bk, it s invaluable wch isn t to say w o value Haeckel is my new favorite artist I discovered him thanks to a documentary called Proteus A Nineteenth Century Vision by David LeBrun I loved the movie If you check it out, make sure to also check out The Making of PROTEUS wch I, as a film vaudeo maker, found particularly compelling The amt of work that LeBrun was driven to in order to complete the movie A Maz Ing A Stound Ing Do words fail me I fail words I wdn t rate this bk, it s invaluable wch isn t to say w o value Haeckel is my new favorite artist I discovered him thanks to a documentary called Proteus A Nineteenth Century Vision by David LeBrun I loved the movie If you check it out, make sure to also check out The Making of PROTEUS wch I, as a film vaudeo maker, found particularly compelling The amt of work that LeBrun was driven to in order to complete the movie is IMPRESSIVE Haeckel s incredible energy, his drive for a thorough worldview, his meticulousness, is BEYOND IMPRESSIVE This edition has introductory essays by Olaf Breidbach Irend us Eibl Eibesfeldt I liked them both BUT, it was Eibl Eibesfeldt s essay that really GRABBED ME The background on research into our perceptual mechanism s their relevance to Haeckel were fascinating, engrossing Eibl Eibesfeldt is obviously another man w a vision pursued w profound dedication Eibl Eibesfeldt quotes Haeckel at length Purely speculative metaphysics, which were further developed from theories of apriorism established by Kant and which found its most radical advocate in Hegel, ultimately led to the utter rejection of empiricism and claimed that all knowledge is in fact acquired through pure reason, independent of all experience Kant s great mistake, which had such serious consequences for all of philosophy that followed, largely lies in the fact that his critical Theory of Cognition did not take into account physiological and phylogenetic principles which were only acquired sixty years after his death through Darwin s reform of the theory of evolution and through the discoveries of the physiology of the brain He regarded the human soul with its inborn characteristics of reason as a ready made being and did not inquire into its historical origins he did not consider that this soul could have developed phylogenetically from the most closely related mammals However, the wonderful ability to make a priori judgements has arisen through the inheritance of cerebral structures, which the vertebrate ancestors of humans acquired slowly and in stages through adaptation and synthetic association of a posteriori experiences and perceptions Moreover, the firmly established perceptions of mathematics and physics, which Kant explained as synthetic a priori judgements, originated by means of the phyletic development of the faculty of judgement and may be traced back to continually recurring a posteriori experiences and conclusions based thereupon The necessity, which Kant ascribed to a particular characteristic of these a priori judgements were these phenomena and conditions fully known Genius, pure genius Alas, Eibl Eibesfeldt goes on to develop his wonderful essay w this Is it not possible that the aesthetic sensibilities of people who have grown up in what many would find ugly, artificial environments of the industrial fringes of modern metropolises, have also been altered as a result of such new environments If this were so, would it not explain, at least in part, the acceptance of assemblages made from found objects and other ignoble materials Oh well weren t Haeckel s radiolarian ALSO found materials ugly ignoble These terms reek too much of decadent art for me Still, Eibl Eibesfeldt s essay is fantastic BUT THE ART Haeckel s devotion is praiseworthy in the extreme by my standards This man was not lazy These drawings turned prints are DETAILED DDDDDEEEEETTTTTAAAAAIIIIILLLLLEEEEEDDDDD The centerpiece of plate 61, Phaeodaria, is an alchemist s latticework if I ve ever seen one a geodesic dome, an a priori grasping of biomorphic geometry Or something plate 87 What s this perspective receding Brion Gysin like quasi rectangle underneath it all I don t care whether this man has been somewhat discredited by modern science he s made an impression on me that once again demonstrates that the greatest minds are interspersed throughout time aren t the flavor of the month STUDY THIS BK STUDY EVERYTHING BY HAECKEL 100 plates of beauty Ernst Haeckel gave us something that we can, like Escher, forever look at Escher inscribed them in Nature, giving birth to what he saw in his mind Haeckel engraved what he saw in Nature.
