The FlorilegiumThe Florilegium

The Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney celebrating 200 years

This beautiful book presents a major collection of contemporary botanical illustration to celebrate the bicentenary of the Sydney's botanic gardens. Forty-one Australian and twenty-three overseas artists have contributed works depicting significant plants in Sydney’s three botanic gardens.

Almost all of the artists are represented in the major public and private collections around the world, and have been awarded medals. The artists have donated their work to the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust to create this florilegium. The paintings will be exhibited at the Museum of Sydney from 30 July to 30 October 2016. In early 2018, the exhibition travels to the Shirley Sherwood Gallery in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew: a measure of its quality.

Also available in paperback [stock id 38919].
