From Hooke’s drawings of fossils to Waller’s botanical watercolours, the history of science is replete with beautiful illustrations of the natural world and experimentation.
Join historian Dr Sachiko Kusukawa on a journey through the intersections of art and science in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Explore sketches, engravings and paintings and learn how scientists used these images to guide their studies. This history of science lecture will demonstrate how early science was truly a visual culture and give background to some of the images and items on display at the Big Draw: Drawing science.
