Evolution





I've been collecting educational charts for nearly ten years. This is the finest I've seen; circa 1937, Chart of Evolution from Norway, illustrated by Borgny Bay. It measures roughly 4' high, x 6' wide (116cm x 175cm).

My grandmother painted this. The original is awesome! The inside joke is that my grandfather modeled for the human in the chart....

WoW! Your Grandmother was Borgny Bay? Where is the original painting? I'm fascinated!

It is owned by the Scientific Institute of Oslo by Tøyen and is very close to the Munch Museum.
