John William Lewin was a naturalist and wildlife artist who documented different species 200 years ago, before the aid of photography. He was intrigued by the tales of exotic wildlife in Australia and went there to see for himself. Lewin's artworks became the first by a European to illustrate the wildlife Down Under. See how he showed the rest of world what Australia had in a collection at BibliOdyssey. Shown here is his painting of a platypus, from 1810. Link
