First time on public

The Rembrandt House Museum and the J. Paul Getty Museum are devoting a large exhibition to the drawn and printed oeuvre of Maria Sibylla Merian and her daughters. The exhibition contains around a hundred original drawings, watercolors, prints and books that have come from museums, print rooms and libraries in the Netherlands and elsewhere. Most of these masterpieces have never been exhibited before.
