Alexander von Humboldt's artistic development is closely linked to his professional activity as a research traveler. Early on, Humboldt's father campaigned for the best possible education of his son. At first he was taught by private tutors together with his older brother Wilhelm. This was already his talent for art. He was also interested in nature. His preferences were encouraged. The famous graphic artist Daniel Chodowiecki taught Humboldt in engraving and etching. As early as 1786, even before he began his studies, Humboldt opened his first art exhibition in Berlin. Shortly after completing his studies in natural sciences, Humboldt undertook initial research trips. They took him to France, among others. Here he experienced the French Revolution in the streets of Paris.

What Humboldt saw on his research trips, he drew. So, in particular, his art prints originating in South America went down in history. In hitherto unknown colonies, in distant South and Central America, he processed what he saw in perfectionist drawings. Together with his travel companion Aimé Bonland, a French doctor and talented botanist, he also collected more than 6,000 plant species. Like no other, he was able to make the foreign flora and fauna comprehensible to other people through his visualizations as infographics. He drew landscapes, animals and people who met him on his travels. Thus he created an invaluable value for posterity of research results that were so immensely important for the further development of the natural sciences.

Alexander von Humboldt was throughout his life one of the most influential patrons of well-known German writers and poets. This not only benefited Heinrich Heine, but also Schiller and Goethe. He was also highly respected and respected by colleagues in science. Charles Darwin, one of the most important British naturalists of the 19th century, always acknowledged this as benevolent. He once described Humboldt as the greatest science traveler of that time. In this country, Baron von Humboldt gained great reputation especially for his true-to-original infographics and wonderful visualizations from the works "Views of Nature" and "Cosmos". His drawings and scientific achievements earned him prizes and honors. Thus, he was honored by the Paris Academy of Sciences as the scientific greatness of his age and celebrated as a "new Aristotle" across national borders. © Meisterdrucke
