Description
Highlights sixty artists who celebrate biodiversity's beauty, interpret natural and human-induced extinctions, and focus on endangered species from diverse ecosystems. It includes the work of artists who spotlight human actions threatening biodiversity alongside art projects that revitalize habitats and reconnect people to the natural world. Surveys a wide range of approaches and media used by artists spanning the nineteenth through twenty-first centuries. By tracing links between contemporary and earlier artists, it reveals continuity within a rich cultural tradition of engagement with nature conservation and juxtaposes the history of art and natural science, exploring artists' pivotal role in raising awareness about biodiversity's importance.
