Book Description

1 May 2014 0711235147 978-0711235144 Dry

The world famous RHS Lindley Libraries hold several collections of botanical paintings made by Asian artists, whether made for the export market to Europe, commissioned by British officials, or, in recent times, made by amateur and professional artists for exhibition and sale in the international market for botanical art. The RHS Diary 2015 contains examples from some of these collections.

Most of the drawings are by Chinese artists, and date from the nineteenth century, when Chinese plants were being introduced into Britain by collectors, some of them working for the Horticultural Society.  Probably the earliest of the Society’s oriental drawings come from an album compiled in Canton around 1800.  A further collection of 100 drawings  of flowers and fruits probably dates originally from the middle of the nineteenth century.  Also included are drawings from  Icones Plantae Japonicae, but the drawings are very much in the Chinese rather than the Japanese style.  The earliest coloured Japanese illustrations in the RHS collection come from a work entitled A hundred chrysanthemums, by Keika Hasegawa, printed around 1891.

Some of the paintings in this diary were made in Sri Lanka, by Harmanis De Alwis, an artist working for the Ceylon Botanic Garden.

This week-to-view diary is illustrated in colour throughout and includes an internal storage pocket. There is also a companion Address Book available separately.
