The Danish king?s roses from the 1700s, exotic papaya and passionflowers, columbines and gorgeous tulips- all have been painted with the finest brushwork in the treasured floral illustrations of the North. A generous selection of watercolors from five centuries, including the plants with which Carl von Linn? decorated his bedroom as well as the plants depicted in the famous royal Danish porcelain, Flora Danica. A comprehensive history of botanical illustrations supplemented by living portraits of artists who continue to capture the beauty and detail of flora.
