Oken Art

Oken (1779 – 1851) was born and raised in Germany. He was fascinated by nature from a tender age and ended up being a botanist, naturalist, ornithologist and biologist. He later extended his to the mineral world and managed to arrange ores according to their combinations with sulphur, acids and oxygen, and not according to the metals. He was born Lorenz Okenfuss and studied medicine and natural history at the universities of Würzburg and Freiburg. After graduation, he joined the University of Göttingen, where he worked as an unsalaried lecturer (Privatdozent). He published a small work which was the first of a series of works that established him as a leader of the movement of "Natural Philosophy" in Germany. In the book, Oken extended the philosophical principles to physical science which Kant Immanuel had applied to morality and epistemology. Oken contended that there are only five animal classes: Dermatozoa, Glossozoa, Rhinozoa, Otozoa and Ophthalmozoa. In 1805, he made advancement in the application of the a priori principle in a book on Die Zeugung (generation), in which he emphasized that "all organic beings consist of and originate from cells or vesicles. These vesicles or cells, when regarded in their natural process of production and singly detached, are the Urschleim (protoplasma) or infusorial mass whence all larger organisms are evolved or fashion themselves. Today, framed Oken art adorn the walls of many academic institutions and galleries. Many collectors also stock them in large numbers because their demand is high; the reason being that they come ready to hang with all the required accessories.
