The Images of Nature art gallery has reopened with the new collection of Indian artwork for 2013.

Our Item of the Month blog will focus specifically on this new display. But in the meantime come a take a look for yourself and let us know what you think. The gallery has a new theme each year and within the year artwork is changed every three months. So there is always something new to catch your eye!

 

My favourite new addition is the pangolin!

 

As well as the watercolours, there are interactive touch screens enabling you to learn more about the collections and the importance of art to science.

 

Sunoj D a contemporary artist was invited to interpret the historical collections and create his own works, these can be seen alongside the NHM Library collections in the gallery.

 

Also included in the gallery are oil paintings and a full sized reproduction of the William Smith geological map.
