Duria Antiquior — probably on of the first examples of paleart (artwork based on subject matter related to paleontology).

The¬†artist was the geologist Henry De la Beche and he based the work on the findings of one of his contemporaries, the 18th century paleontologist Mary Anning. We’re curruntly doing some research on Anning’s work, so¬†there will be more posts on her soon.
