Born in Nuremberg, Germany, Georg Wolfgang Knorr is known for the delicate detail and precision of his illustrations of shells and starfish. His drawings were influenced by his own interest in science, a popular subject matter of his era. Knorr (1705 –1761) was also a talented engraver of portraits, landscapes and animal studies, many of which were published. Among these, his Knorr’s engravings for Jacob Scheuchzer’s treatise "Physica sacra" are the most significant.

Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto the paper’s surface creating natural color transitions. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is a great option for framing with its smooth, acid free surface.
