Description:
Mary Granville Pendarves Delany [1700-1788] was the witty, beautiful, and talented daughter of a minor branch of a powerful family. Married off at 17 to a 61 year old drunken squire to improve the family fortunes, then widowed by 25, she would spurn many suitors over the next 20 years, including the charismatic Lord Baltimore, and she would also refuse to retire to a quiet, pensioned existence. Instead, she cultivated a wide circle of friends including Handel and Jonathan Swift. And she painted, she stitched, she observed, as she swirled in the outskirts of the Georgian court. In mid-life, she finally found love and married again. Upon her second husband's death 23 years later, she arose from her grief, picked up a pair of scissors and at the age 72, created a new art form, mixed-media collage. Over the next decade, she created 985 botanically correct, breathtaking cut-paper flowers, now housed in the British Museum and referred to as the Flora Delanica. Notes, Index,398 pages.
