Suitable for Framing: A Woman’s Place in Botanical Art & Scientific Illustration
When English botanist John Lindley wrote “A Ladies Botany” in 1834, it was to separate women from the higher academic echelons of botany. Nevertheless, 17th-20th century women contributed greatly to the world of botanical art and scientific illustration. Learn about women who “broke the glass (house) ceiling” with their beautiful, extraordinary accomplishments and brave, often controversial decisions.
Following this hour-long illustrated lecture by Lesley Parness, you will have an opportunity to view an exhibit of Women’s Botanical Art and Scientific Illustration from the Elizabeth Donnell Kay Rare Book Collection.
