An early and vocal supporter of Charles Darwin s theory of evolution, German biologist Ernst Haeckel (1834 1919) was trained as a physician and worked as a zoologist. In hopes of widening the public s understanding of naturalism, he published Kunstformen der Natur (or Art forms in nature) in 1904. Equal parts scientific text and artistic endeavor, it highlights Haeckel s particular interest in the symmetries in living organisms. The work s elaborate forms have been called a precursor to art nouveau.
