Jean-Charles Werner (1798 - 1856)

Werner was a natural history artist and comparative anatomist for the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris, where he contributed some 350 paintings of animals on vellum for the famous Collection des vélins between the years 1826 and 1856. The Collection, initiated in 1631, contained work by the finest natural history artists in France, including Nicolas Robert and Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Werner provided illustrations for the publication of Dumont d’Urville’s expeditions to Australia and the South Pacific, and also worked with Cuvier, Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, and Henri Ducrotay de Blainville. Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire named a species of monkey after him.
