About this artwork
The picture belongs to a series of portraits Wolff painted under the title "Walden Wall of Fame". The series was created for the exhibition "Walden" in which Wolff dealt with her and our relationship to nature and the images we make of nature.
As a naturalist and artist, Maria Sybilla Merian has shaped the image of nature in her time. She lived from 1647 to 1717. Her closely observed representations of
Metamorphosis of butterflies made her a pioneer of modern entomology.
She was also recognized as an artist during her lifetime. She became famous through her main work "Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium", for which she travelled with her daughter from Amsterdam to Surinam. On site she undertook excursions into inaccessible primeval forests to research, collect and draw the insects there. Merian's division of butterflies into day and night moths is still valid today.
