Beetles and Other Insects

Beetles and Other Insects
Using rare and fascinating specimens entrusted to him by the entomologists of the Museum of Natural History in Paris, painter and illustrator Bernard Durin (1940–1988) portrayed each insect as an “individual personality.” 48 of his mesmerizing portraits adorn this publication—masterly paintings that outshine any imagery that today’s most advanced computer animation could ever produce.
