Drawing on nature

Drawing on Nature bridged the gap between science and art, with the beautiful and bizarre views of the 19th century artists and scientists of Australia and America.

Drawn from the collections of the Museum of Victoria and the Macleay Museum at the University of Sydney, this exhibition sought to challenge our preconceptions by juxtaposing different cultural depictions and by asking how different cultures see and explain nature.

21 December 1992 - 21 February 1993
