Alexander von Humboldt's artistic development is closely linked to his professional activity as a research traveller. From an early age, Humboldt's father was committed to the best possible education for his son. Initially he was taught by tutors together with his older brother Wilhelm. Here his talent for art was already evident. He was also interested in nature. His preferences were encouraged. The famous graphic artist Daniel Chodowiecki Humboldt taught copper engraving and etching. In 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 his first research trips. They took him to France, among other places. Here he experienced the French Revolution in the streets of Paris.

What Humboldt saw on his research trips, he drew. His art prints made in South America, in particular, went down in history. In hitherto unknown colonies in faraway 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 over 6,000 plant species. The foreign flora and fauna he was able to make comprehensible to other people like no other through his visualizations as infographics. He drew landscapes, animals and people he encountered on his travels. In this way he created for posterity an inestimable value of research results which 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 regarded and respected by colleagues in the scientific community. Charles Darwin, one of the most important British natural scientists of the 19th century, always acknowledged this benevolently. He once described Humboldt as the greatest science traveller of his time. In this country, Baron von Humboldt was held in high esteem above all for his true-to-the-original infographics and wonderful visualizations from the works "Views of Nature" and "Cosmos". His drawings and scientific achievements earned him prizes and honours. For example, he was honoured by the Paris Academy of Sciences as the scientific greatness of his age and celebrated as the "new Aristotle" beyond national borders. © Meisterdrucke
