Maritime & Aquatic Prints
This is a NO RESERVE Auction! A blend of illustration and science, the Nautical Prints auction allows you to explore tide pools, oceanic depths and forest underbrush. Throughout the 19th century, British naturalists set out to explore the wonders of natural history. Within the pages of their encyclopedias and scientific journals were exquisite prints of creatures. Marvel at the detailed etching that brings the studies to life: black-and-white contrast forms the ridges of a clamshell and a touch of dark blue highlights the eye of an arctic bird. Any nature enthusiast will appreciate imaginative designs that are rooted in historical tradition.
