Ernst Haeckel's Kunstformen der Natur (1904)Wikimedia Foundation, California, United States
Description A descriptive note detailing the content and context of the digital collection.
“What is it that Haeckel depicts here that is so beautiful? It is the beauty of ornament. The forms illustrated in these pages seem to fit seamlessly into the repertoire of Art Nouveau forms. Haeckel demonstrates the magic of organic symmetries. He teaches us to look at life-forms as elements of an organic crystallography.”
