From today - the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth - discover the major exhibition Endless Forms: Charles Darwin, Natural Science and the Visual Arts with the new dedicated website online now. This ground-breaking exhibition opening at The Fitzwilliam Museum on 16 June 2009 reveals an unusual and previously unexplored aspect of Charles Darwin’s legacy - the impact of his theories upon artists of the late nineteenth century. Exploring both Darwin’s interest in the visual arts and the vast range of artistic responses to his revolutionary ideas, Endless Forms brings together a remarkable variety of nearly two hundred objects and works of art from around the world, many on public display in the UK for the first time.
The exhibition has been developed by The Fitzwilliam Museum in association with the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, Connecticut.
