BUFFON'S DES ANIMAUX
In the Age of Science, no artist capitalized on the trend of linking man and nature better than George Luis Leclerc Buffon (1749 – 1804).
His largest body of work Histoire Naturelle placed animals and beasts against backdrops of civilization. Each creature has an almost human expression.
