Haeckel Art Forms in Nature to Wear

Haeckel's early desire was to enter the field of art. It was natural for him to put on paper what he saw in the microscope. He first work was The Radiolaran Atlas of 1862. It showcased 35 plates and zoology notes on the skeletal structures of the one-celled animals.

The visual aspects of his first work helped launch him into household name recognition, long before the publication of Art Forms in Nature in 1898.

The plates in his first work are spheres with repetitive circles, spikes, hexagons and curlicues; a viewers first reaction is excitement. The Radiolarian Atlas is a precursor of art nouveau.

Customize on Zazzle's Haeckel Shop Has Ernst Haeckel

I have to admit that Zazzle is "Thee" place to go for Haeckel themed products, but carries all the books and some posters.

I found the biography, "The Tragic Sense of Life: Ernest Heakel and the Struggle over Evolutionary Thought" interesting for its thorough look into Haeckel and the controversies his personality, and a printing error, caused in his later career. I also enjoyed the look into the Victorian era and the Darwinism Haeckel championed his whole life. The ideas "The Origin of The Species" was a big influence on his view of the world. He lectured for scientific principles and academic thinking.

Haeckel admired the book so much he decided that meeting Darwin was essential to his own work. Where Darwin was quiet about his work, Haeckel wanted to shout and support the new astounding ideas.

Haeckel became famous and infamous. A mistake on a printed page was forever tied to his name, even though, it was corrected in the next issue of the academic work.

Customize hundreds of Haeckel images on Zazzle. Many images of been cropped from the original page groupings for zeroing on your favorite creature. Take the image and make it your own with Zazzle's editor or browse the many prducts that Zazzle artists have already created.

All 100 illustrated plates from Art Forms in Nature really impressed at first viewing. He really was a very good artist. He dedicated his main work to academics first. He probably realized he would make a better living for his family.
