Watching the behavior of animals in their environment (often created by humans) is one of my favorite leisure activities. It´s not only hilarious sometimes, it also gives information about how we share space and how animals interfuse our everyday life. Even our metaphorical language and our visual thinking, and maybe also our own behavior. The story began a long time ago and pictures are essential for it. As an art historian, I am very interested in how images and stories of animals were formed throughout the centuries. One important source here is the Aesopian fable. My aim is now to collect fables in the fine arts, graphics and applied arts from 1600 until 1900 and to specify the presentation of (living) animals in the fine arts.
