The artist and botanical collector
There are only a handful of known remaining copies of 'The Wild Flowers of New South Wales', a small booklet of watercolours and descriptions published in the late 19th century by Shoalhaven-based artist Gertrude Lovegrove and botanical collector William Bäuerlen.
CSL’s Megan Martin joins Michael Williams on Blueprint for Living as she discusses the story behind the publication, and the ambitious, although thwarted endeavour, to produce a multi-part publication of botanical record.
