5.0 out of 5 stars VISUALLY ARRESTING AND EMOTIONALLY COMPELLING, 13 Feb. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Arthur Harry Church: The Anatomy of Flowers (Hardcover)
Arthur Harry Church, scientist, painter, and teacher, left an incomparable legacy of botanical illustrations. His work, which has often been compared to that of Georgia O'Keeffe, is to this writer just as visually and emotionally compelling.
The vibrancy of Church's work may be due, in part, to his disciplines - he saw his subject with a scientist's mind and an artist's eye whether it was an abundant flower from the Oxfordshire country or a rare specimen from South Africa. His cross-sections and diagrams leave no doubt as to his teachery thought processes or his artistic vision.
This rare volume holds much previously unpublished material from the archives of London's Natural History Museum as well as 100 illustrations, each imbued with a rhythmic vitality.
Undoubtedly, "The Anatomy Of Flowers" will be appreciated by those with an interest in botanical prints and those who enjoy the striking clarity of the art nouveau.

This review is from: Arthur Harry Church: The Anatomy of Flowers (Hardcover)
Wonderful book of a botanical artist who is largely unknown. Plates are beautifully reproduced on good quality paper. Shame it is out of print.
