Meet our Curators
Josephine Arader is passionate about the tradition of Natural Historians throughout European and American History. She believes that there is a strong correlation between the Natural Historians of the past and our current understanding of and relationship with the Natural World. The watercolors, color plate books and cartographic works that were produced by natural historians from the 16th-19th Centuries can give us a poignant understanding of the times from which they originate as they bring the past into the present with vivid power.
