Abstract

18 Niets briljants of zwierigs heeft Johannes Goedaert; een ernstig, hard- werkend man die rustige geluksstemmingen moet hebben gekend in zijn huis, dat uitzag op Middelburgs bescheidener Vijverberg, en in de rijke, intieme natuur van het eiland dat hem zijn leven lang stof en avontuur bood voor pen en penseel. A Middelburg Brueghel Group by L. J. Bol IX. Johannes Goedaert, Painter - Entomologist (1617 - Middelburg - 1668) Whereas Adriaen van de Venne liked scenes of stir and bustle, Johannes Goedaert sought solitude. He was interested in landscape, flowers, birds, insects. He was a pioneer in the field of entomology. He initiated a new trend in this science, viz. that of seeing and breeding insects for oneself and then describing and drawing one's observations. His three-volume entomological book Metamorphosis Naturalis (1662-1669) is illustrated with some 150 copper engravings of caterpillars, maggots and pupae of butterflies, flies and other insects previously drawn by him in water colour. Goedaert's opera omnia: his landscapes, flower still-lifes and entomological work show that he loved lucidity.
