EVERY INDIVIDUAL MATTERS (Jane Goodall)
The picture belongs to a series of portraits painted under the title "Walden Wall of Fame". The series was created for the exhibition "Walden" in which Wolff dealt with her and our relationship to nature and the images we make of nature.
This portrait shows the British behavioural scientist Jane Goodall.
Along with Dian Fossey (gorillas) and Birutė Galdikas (orang-utans), Goodall is one of three women who, at the suggestion of paleoanthropologist Louis Leakey, began long-term studies on great apes in the early 1960s. Leakey and the three researchers suspected that they would be able to draw conclusions from observations of the behaviour of the apes about the evolution of their behaviour in the course of human tribal history.
