Maria Sibylla Merian was a fine painter and superb naturalist, one of the first woman scientists we know of. Her observations of insects and their relationships with plants revolutionized botany and zoology. This beautiful softly colored canvas measures 11″ x 14″ on 14, 16 or 18 mesh mono deluxe needlepoint canvas. Please indicate your mesh preference in the Notes section at Checkout.

Whether displayed in isolation or in a grouping of Merian’s work, this canvas will surely command attention.
