Research

Marlise Rijks is a postdoc working at the project ‘Depicting the Aquatic Fauna in Early Modern Europe’, a sub-project of the larger NWO-project ‘A New History of Fishes: A Long-term Approach to Fishes in Science and Culture, 1550-1880’. By the middle of sixteenth century, relatively shortly after the publication of the first printed books on aquatic animals, artists started to depict fish and other aquatic animals. The aquatic fauna was depicted in albums with drawings, print series, and innovative painterly genres, while collectors showed a keen interest in aquatic collectables. This project questions the depiction of the aquatic fauna in relation to natural knowledge and the culture of collecting.
