Beauty in truth: the botanical art of Margaret Stones
National Gallery of Victoria, Jun 1, 1996 - Art - 96 pages
Here is the best of Margaret Stone, one of the world's most admired botanical artists -- watercolors of flowers and plant life from the western and southeastern United States, England, South Africa, and Australia, including Tasmania. Her highly acclaimed art has a diagrammatic formality, purity of color and articulate clarity. Her commissions have included painting the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and the Herbarium, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne, the flora of Tasmania, the flora of Louisiana, for which she produced 250 of her most perfect drawings, as well as a magnificent portfolio for the 250th birthday of Thomas Jefferson for Monticello.
