Today these prints and reproductions alike are not only a learning tool but an investment, Gilbert says. “You’re buying something that’s beautiful that you must understand to appreciate. When you learn about the courageous people who dedicated their lives to doing this—risking their lives and sometimes their fortunes—you see that it’s more than just an image; it’s symbolic of the sacrifice of the person who produced it.”
Gilbert shares his passion for natural history and art by presenting lectures and selling a wide variety of original antique artwork and reprints.
