Print Description

Scarlet Ibis with an Egg, Dorothea Maria Gsell (attributed to), 1699 - 1701.

This drawing is attributed to Dorothea Maria Gsell, daughter of artist and scientist, Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717). In 1699, she and her mother traveled to Suriname to draw all sorts of exotic animals. Dorothea successfully rendered the bright red-orange plumage of the scarlet ibis by applying several layers of opaque paint. - via Rijksmuseum
