A masterpiece by Maria Sibylla Merian, one of the greatest female scientists and artists of the seventeenth century, is stored here in this librabry. ‘When looking at the breathtaking results of Merian’s work you have to agree with me that the Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium was made by a naturalist who was also the greatest botanical and insect painter that ever lived.’ —Redmond O’Hanlon, author and explorer.
