A new flowering: 1,000 years of botanical art.
Oxford: Ashmolean Museum, 2005.
Quarto, paperback, 200 pp. colour illustrations.
This catalogue represents the Ashmolean Museum's, leading exhibition of 2005, providing the unique opportunity to compare illustrations by contemporary artists alongside remarkable botanical art of the past. Chosen by Dr. Shirley Sherwood from her acclaimed collection of botanical painting by artists worldwide, and from the rich historical treasures of Oxford's libraries and museums, such as the Flora Graeca (1806-1840) by Ferdinand Bauer, one of Oxford's greatest treasures, these inspiring plant portraits stand at the interface between art and science.
