Humboldt in the Andes. 19th-century artwork of the expedition led by the German naturalist and geographer Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859). Here, they are at the base of the volcano Mount Chimborazo, in the Andes, in what is now Ecuador. At the time, the mountain was thought to be the highest in the world. Humboldt and the expedition members are collecting plant specimens. On this expedition (1799 to 1804), Humboldt and French botanist Aime Bonpland mapped large areas of South America and catalogued its flora and fauna. This artwork is a detail from Plate 25 of 'Voyage aux Regions Equinoxiales' (1807).
