Georg C. Oeder Wall Art

Georg C. Oeder (Born 1728) was born in Ansbach. He was Danish-German- botanist, economist, medical doctor and social reformer. His name features prominently in the initiation of the plate work Flora Danica. He was the son of Georg Ludwig Oeder who was a theologian and Bavarian parish minister. Oeder studied medicine under Albrecht von Haller at the University of Göttingen. He then chose to settle as a doctor of medicine in Schleswig. In 1751, he was called by the king to Copenhagen on the recommendation of von Haller. The conservative– and autonomous - University of Copenhagen, was reluctant to employ him because he was a foreigner. They resisted his appointment in an ordinary chair. so, he was appointed Royal Professor (Professor botanices regius) and soon he led the establishment of a new botanic garden. Beginning 1753, Oeder took part in the publication of an enormous plate of botanical work which was referred to as “Flora Danica.”

This was planned to cover at first all fungi and plants including lichens and bryophytes native to crown lands of the Danish king –Schleswig-Holstein, Denmark, Norway and Oldenburg-Delmenhorst– with its dependencies the Faroe Islands, North Atlantic Iceland, and Greenland. During the years from 1758 to 1760, he visited Norway’s mountain regions up to Trondheim. The artist used color, a variety of subject matter, and animated brushwork to make his art unique. His passion for arts made him to appreciate the beauty of nature. Within a short time, he had been known by many clients in this region and his art sold in large numbers.
