One of the most extraordinary items on offer at this year’s TEFAF, the Natural History Paper Museum of Holy Roman Emperor Rudolph II, will be exhibited in the Rijksmuseum. The unique collection of 750 exquisite watercolours of animals, birds and plants from the late Renaissance period were compiled between 1596 and 1610 as a compendium of zoology and botany—a Historia Naturalis—by Rudolph II’s court physician, Anselmus de Boodt. The albums remained together for four centuries which accounts for the extraordinary condition of the watercolours, their colours still pristine. The albums have been purchased by a private collector and will be on long-term loan to the Rijksmuseum.
