The Sunday Video: Darwin’s Endless Forms

This weeks Sunday Video comes from the BBC. As part of celebrations marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin on February 12, the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge England hosted an exhibition that explored the impact that Darwin’s scientific legacy had on the 19th Century art world. The BBC reported it to be “an exhibition which reveals art’s debt to Darwin” and provided a slideshow guided tour with the curators Diana Donald and Jane Munro. This year marks the 150th Anniversary of the publication of Darwin’s famous book, “On The Origin of Species.”
