Peer into a hypnotic underwater garden. This painterly image from a nineteenth-century naturalist’s encyclopedia, with its subtle chromolithographic colors and details, comes straight from the collection of John Derian, the artist and designer whose work with printed images of the past transports the viewer to another time and place. And as you piece it together, you do begin to wonder: Might one actually encounter these sea plants today, or is this a glimpse into a lost age from the ocean’s vast, mysterious history?
