Product Description

Bernard Durin: Beetles and Other Insects French patinter and illustrator Bernard Durin (1940-1988) discovered the beauty of insects for himself and for his art during a walk in Provence in 1972. During the following decades he made around 60 portraits of insects, using rare and fascinating specimens entrusted to him by the etymologists of the Museum of Natural History in Paris. Going far beyond the centuries-old tradition of documentary representations of animals, Durin succeeded in portraying each insect as an "individual personality." Gerhard scherer wrote the introduction and the texts accompanying the plates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunningly Beautiful works of art. Best in my collection 27 Feb 2014
By Richard D. Eldridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
From the moment you flip the first pages you realize you are in for a treat. The quality paper stock, the somewhat oversized pages, and the beautifully rendered art is equaled only by the production values of this book. Love this book, cannot recommend it highly enough.
