The database on scientific illustrators (DSI) was launched in 2011 and is a project by the Section for History of Science & Technology [Abteilung für Geschichte der Naturwissenschaften und Technik, GNT] at the History Dept. at the University of Stuttgart. Its aims are to provide quick and reliable searchable reference information about scientific illustrators and it includes more than 12460 illustrators in natural history, medicine, technology and various sciences, active between c.1450 and c.1950 in more than 100 countries.
