SUPERB ORIGINAL WATERCOLOUR PAINTING - PLATE 122 FROM WILD FLOWERS OF THE WORLD Featuring the Following European Species Thunbergia Grandiflora, Aeschynanthus Longiflorus and Phlogacanthus Guttatus

By Everard, Barbara

This is the original plate No. 122 from "Wild Flowers of the World" - a fine water-colour painting by the renowned botanical artist Barbara Everard (b. 1910, died ?). It is a highly decorative work in very good condition with vibrant but accurate colours, being much finer than the rather poor reproduction in "Wild Flowers of the World" suggests. And far larger too, measuing 46 x 37cm. It has hand-written pencil notes to the reverse presumably in the hand of Everard, regarding the species depicted and various printing notes. (there are a couple of inconspicuous corrections/revisions to the painting) Barbara Everard worked at Kew and is one of only nineteen "contemporary" botanical artists whose work features in William T. Stearn's "Flower Artists of Kew", 1990 (plates 9, 10 & 11) also published in America under the title "Botanical Masters: Plant Portraits by Contemporary Artists. New York: Prentice Hall, 1990". Everard began drawing and painting flowers in 1947 when in the Far East. She has provided illustrations for many works among them O. Pulin and A. Huxley, Flowers of the Mediterranean (1965), but her major work was the superb and highly successful 'Wild Flowers of the World' (1970) with text by Brian D. Morley. This monumental work, whilst neither rare nor expensive has become a classic of the botanical literature, in large part due to the 192 plates by Everard, featuing over 1000 of the world's exotic and colourful plants - and this is a rare opportunity to acquire one of these original plates. Everard was a keen and accomplished gardener with a fine collection of orchids. She set up the "The Barbara Everard Trust for Orchid Conservation" recognising the need to conserve private collections of orchids as they often contained plants no longer growing in their native habitat. The Trust is administered by the Orchid Society of Great Britain as a separate charity. As much of her time was spent illustrating books, she rarely sold her paintings privately and on her death left her orchids and the majority of her paintings and studies to the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew. Consequently her original paintings are rare, but given their quality should be in every serious collection. We have a few other orginal plates from "Wild Flowers of the World" and would be pleased to offer discounts on multiple orders. For further details or images please do not hesitate to contact us. (Please note: this painting supplied with mount and backing, but not framed.). Fine. Fine Art Print.

This is an original botanical watercolour painting of a Erythronium japonica painted by Lorna B. Kell. The internal mount dimensions are 215 x 170mm. "Lorna Beatrice Kell born in London 1914. Painter of still life and abstracts, printmaker and textile designer. She studied at Hornsey School of Art, 1930-3, her teachers including Russell Reeve, Frank Winter and Norman Janes. She joined Henry Lorraine Kell shortly after he began Lorraine Designs in 1935, married him and became sole proprietor in 1956. The firm specialised in commemorative scarves for Liberty of London, the Oxford Collection and others. Kell was elected to the Society of Graphic Artists in 1959, (an artist of repute, Kell, was President for eleven years. She saw the Society through some difficult times and helped to keep it well established at a time when [tradtional] art was often ridiculed by the public as conceptual art became the latest trend) Kell was a founder-fellow of the Society of Botanical Artists and a fellow of the Royal Horticultural Society, winning its Grenfell Medal. She produced botanical drawings for the Junior Encyclopaedia Britannica and showed at RA, RE, London Guildhall, Paris Salon and in the provinces. She Lived in Barnet, Hertfordshire. This particular painting, signed Lorna B Kell, but not dated. This is a good example of her work and shows her fluency and ability to capture the essence of the botanical subject, in this case a fine Erythronium. (We have other paintings similar to this - sets of 2 and 3 look very well uniformly framed and hung together; we also work with very good local framers and can arrange to have the art framed at a reasonable price.).
