Ernst Haeckel is perhaps the most well-recognized scientific illustrator of all time, popularly known for his striking and intricate paintings of strange sea creatures.
Haeckel's illustration of Orchidaceae is one of his comparatively few drawings of plants (another being Haeckel's Nepenthes). It depicts sixteen different types of orchids, including Oncidium, Paphiopedilum and Cattelya.
