The Herbarium and the watercolours

Henri Fabre collected plants for decades as he walked the countryside around the Harmas. He built up a gigantic Herbarium. He also painted more than 600 naturalist watercolours. The Herbarium and the watercolours have been restored and are now part of the Muséum collections.
