Charles Darwin Archives - Arts & Collections

Discovering the Age of Charles Darwin

Sotheby’s London will auction an impressive collection of historical works centred on Charles Darwin. In the year 1868, Darwin and his family visited the Isle of Wight. For six weeks, they stayed at the lodge of photographer Julia Margaret Cameron—during this time they were visited by figures like Tennyson and Longfellow. Photos from these six weeks are just a small part of The Garrett Herman Collection, a compilation of extraordinary works centered on Charles Darwin....
