Gerrit Wartenaar Lambertz (fl. 1775)
Pieter Cramer, a rich eighteenth century wool merchant used his wealth to indulge his collecting obsession. He adored colourful butterflies and moths that had been collected from around the world and engaged the artist Gerrit Wartenaar Lambertz (fl. 1775) to draw his fine collection.
Over the centuries his highly prized specimens have mostly
perished drawings of them survive as a record of his amazing
passion for collecting.
