Kunstformen der Natur, Lieferung 1

Deel 1 van Kunstformen der Natur bestaat uit tien litho's gemaakt door de Duiste bioloog Ernst Haekcel en lithograaf Adolf Giltch. In totaal zijn er tussen 1899 en 1904 tien van dergelijke volume's gepubliceerd. Alle volumes zijn later, in 1904, opnieuw uitgebracht als een enkel boek.

De prenten tonen verschillende bijzondere organismen. Waarvan velen voor het eerst door Haeckel zijn ontdekt en opgetekend. Veel bekende kunstenaars vonden inspiratie in zijn representatie van de schoonheid binnen de natuur. Hier onder zijn de eerste 10 platen te bekijken.
