Paul Pfurtscheller

"This chart comes from a series of zoological charts by Paul Pfurtscheller, a high-school teacher, biologist, and one of the early producers of wall charts. All of Pfurtscheller’s charts exhibit similar visual qualities: one large image of the whole animal surrounded by a few, carefully chosen and economically illustrated details of the anatomy. Otto Schmeil wrote about Pfurtscheller’s charts, “In my opinion, they are the most artistically accomplished wallcharts that have appeared so far." -- reference
