If you are wondering, Adolphe Millot (1857 – 1921) was the senior illustrator at Paris’s national natural history museum ( Muséum national d’histoire naturelle ). He painted these fabulous natural history posters for the French illustrated dictionary “Le Petit Larousse Illustré”, first published in 1905.

This is the first of 2 Ocean posters. These general ocean prints are my favourites from Adolphe Millot’s marine life collection.
Rather than a typical identification sheet, it’s a more artistic interpretation of life in the ocean. I love the variety of sea creatures, from starfish on the Ocean floor to free-swimming Jellyfish and sharks. This would look fabulous displayed in a round frame like this under-the-sea porthole.

The first of 2 fish identification posters of Adolphe Millot. There are 40 fish illustrations on this poster, from the small sticklebacks to swordfish.
As with all Adolphe Millot posters the
The second fish identification poster in Adolphe’s marine posters. Twenty-nine illustrated fish on this sea life print, from a sea horse to a sea eagle.

Not only are the fish and crustaceans named but so is the coral and any plant life.
