Maria Sibylla was an extremely enterprising, independent woman, extraordinary artist and keen, observant natural historian, among the first to observe and illustrate the metamorphosis of insects and amphibians. Her elaborate drawings and observations made a lasting contribution to natural sciences and straddle the histories of science and art. In 1699 she sailed to Surinam to collect, record and draw unusual plants and live insects and other animals, culminating in the publication of Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium (1705).
