Poetic Botany Art & Science of the Eighteenth-Century Vegetable World

Via the New York Botanical Garden – A Digital Exhibit: “Poetic Botany identifies an eighteenth-century movement in which botany became the subject of poetry. The relationship between art and science cultivated during this movement resulted in a rich trove of botanical knowledge, sumptuously presented in books, artworks, and gardens. This exhibition will introduce the poetic botanists who constituted this movement, the works they created, and the themes implicated in their works. Above all, though, this exhibition will present nine of the most beautiful, curious, and sensational species living within those very pages. Plants are the true protagonists here. They are what animates everything that follows.”
