Composed of large-scale botanical illustrations, hand painted onto individual segments of India tea paper, ‘Botanical Studies’, designed by Michael S. Smith, references the 17th Century home of Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus who papered the walls of his home with studies by the artist Georg Dionyius Ehret. Striking renditions of Passiflora (Passion Flowers), Chestnut, Heliotrope, Bauhinia (Orchid Tree), Grapevine, Gardenias, Sesbania Grandiflora (Hummingbird Tree) and Indian Pellet Shrub (Pavetta Indica) evoke the quiet beauty of Botany’s golden age.
