Product description


"It is part of the charm of these paintings that they are as much works of Marseus's imagination as of scientific observation. This is what is so beguiling about his art--one can see in it changing modes of thought at work, a gradual groping toward a world of scientific accuracy, even as the arrangement of the lush, unearthly plants and the animals, with their wonderful, quizzical expressiveness, seems to spring from the mind of the painter, presented for maximum visual appeal and delight." --Chris Carroll "New York Review of Books "
