Four centuries of botanical illustration

Significant milestones in the history of botanical illustration shed light on the evolution of scientific and artistic development. Drawn from the Museum’s extensive collection of antique prints, the selected examples of early woodblock, engraving and lithography highlight the discovery of the bounties of the plant world, the origins of botany and methods of printmaking.
