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


gallery indian 1.JPG


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.

The Natural History Museum


Audit closure March 2013: The Library & Archives will be closed to visitors from 18th – 22nd March 2013. We will re-open to external visitors on Tuesday 26th March.


We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


It is your last chance to see the First Fleet artwork currently on display in our Images of Nature gallery. The gallery closes from Monday 25th February and reopens on Wednesday 27th February with a brand NEW theme.


Indian artwork will be the theme for the next year, and every three months the artwork on display will be changed. This enables visitors to see other examples from our sizeable collection and allows us to protect our collections from any potential environmental damage such as light or temperature.


There will be a blog in March all about the forthcoming theme and examples of the items to be displayed, but in the meantime here is an taster to wet your appetite!

Monsters in the Library


by Lisa Di Tommaso (Special Collections Librarian)



Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605) was a true Renaissance man who studied law, philosophy, logic and mathematics at the universities of Bologna and Padua. He was one of the great innovators of the study of nature during this period.


Ulyssis Aldrvandi- Monstrorum Historia-002-050213 - edit.jpgAldrovandi image 2.jpg


Aldrovandi established one of the most acclaimed curiosity cabinets in European history, containing more than 18,000 specimens, according to his written description from 1595. He was a believer in observing the species of study and he was an advocate for accurate illustrations in natural history books. His aim was to accurately identify and describe as large an amount of animals, plants and minerals that was possible and with the advancement of travel, new plant species and animals were being discovered all the time.



He travelled as much as he could in order that he could observe species for himself. He had his own museum which was a centre of study and research for him and his students. His watercolour and tempera collection totalled 8,000. He would commission artists and hire painters, and he also received many drawings as gifts.

Aldrovandi wrote roughly 400 volumes on natural history. Getting the work published was tougher though, and only a handful of his books were printed during his lifetime. One of the few was Monstrorum Historia: cum paralipomenis historiae omnium animalium, 1642 ("A history of monsters with the addition of the history of all animals"), a compendium of reported human and animal abnormalities.



The book includes accounts not only of malformed natural births but also of entirely imaginary monsters. Despite his dedication to scientific accuracy, this sort of juxtaposition was common at the time, since there was not as yet a distinction between the literary and the scientific. If a given monster had been described by previous authors it was considered proper and erudite to mention it, whether or not it was actually real.


Upon his death Aldrovandi’s museum was bequeathed to the city of Bologna and became the city’s first public museum.

My colleagues and I in the Library & Archives are very lucky to work with such fascinating and varied collections. But sometimes it is easy to take for granted the shelves upon shelves of books that we walk past in corridors on a daily basis.




Recently we had a small display in our reading room, of some of the gems we have where the cover alone catches the imagination before you've even opened it up.


On a shelf with hundreds of others, with only a spine to catch the eye.




The amount of detail and thought put into some is incredible. Of course they come from a period where photography was either non-existent or only in its infancy and where the skill of the artist was the only way to make your book stand out from the rest.


The subject of natural history lends itself so well to the creativity of a publisher/author, and it is fascinating how they weave the theme of the book into the design of it's cover.
