Botanical art from the collection of Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (also known as 'Kew Gardens'), one of the world’s largest botanical gardens and a UNESCO World Heritage site will be presented in this exhibition. Botanical art, which depicts plants from both scientific and artistic perspectives, underwent great developments in the eighteenth century as the British monarchy and botanical gardens prospered.
This exhibition, which traces the history of Kew Gardens’ botanical art collection, the largest in the world, focuses on valuable eighteenth-century pictures of plants; it also includes the Wedgewood porcelain “Queensware” dishes supplied to the royal household for the queen.
