Science meets art in this ground-breaking exhibition revealing an unusual and previously unexplored aspect of Charles Darwin’s legacy – the impact of his theories upon artists of the late nineteenth century.
Developed by The Fitzwilliam Museum in association with the Yale Center for British Art, Endless Forms: Charles Darwin, Natural Science and the Visual Arts offers an intriguing new perspective on the cultural resonance of Darwin’s theories.
This landmark exhibition explores both Darwin’s interest in the visual arts and the vast range of artistic responses to his revolutionary ideas, through an astonishingly diverse selection of exhibits from around the world.
The exhibit will show at the Yale Center for British Art from February 12 – May 3, 2009 and at the Fitzwilliam Museum (University of Cambridge) June 16 – October4, 2009.
