description

Summary

Gerhard Heilmann's illustrations of the dorsal (I) and ventral (II) view of the wing of the Berlin Archaeopteryx specimen, then known as Archaeornis, and ventral view of the wing showing how quills would have attached to digit (III).

Gerhard Heilmann (1859–1946) was a Danish artist and paleontologist who created artistic depictions of Archaeopteryx, Proavis and other early bird relatives apart from writing the 1926 book The Origin of Birds, a pioneering and influential account of bird evolution. Heilmann lacked a formal training in science although he studied medicine briefly before shifting to art.
