Olive Earle was a children’s book writer and illustrator whose work centered on the natural world. Her work was exhibited in group shows at American Museum of Natural History, Brooklyn Museum, Los Angeles Museum, and more. For a time she made her home on Staten Island and we can assume that many of the plants and animals she sketched here made their way into her beloved books.

Join Collections Manager Audrey Malachowky for a closer look.

Lunch and Learn is a new lecture and presentation series beginning with a focus on objects in the museum’s collection. Join us when you’re hungry for knowledge, but only have time for a snack.
