Philip P. Calvert, Young Artist
As for many entomologists, Philip P. Calvert's interest
in insects began with butterflies. The following gallery of watercolor
drawings of butterflies were done by Calvert in 1885 at the age of 14.
The originals are in the Ewell Sale Stewart Library, Academy of Natural
Sciences of Philadelphia. The examples below are scanned from slides and
