Mrs Delany and Her Flower Collages
London: British Museum Press, 1992.
Revised edition, with a complete list of the works.
Mrs. Delany was one of the most creative figures in 18th century British society.
Already famous for embroidery, shellwork and landscape studies, she embarked on a new project in her seventies, which eventually comprised over 1,000 flower collages.
Using hundreds of colored paper pieces, her 'mosaics' are stunningly accurate portraits of flower species.
