A selection of 34 original contemporary botanical illustrations from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Botanical illustration is a delicate combination of art and science: a true and lifelike representation of a plant that provides a visually striking image.
Mottisfont's exhibition showcases intricately detailed and colourful illustrations of flowers, leaves and trees – including some varieties that you'll find out in the grounds, such as sweet chestnut.
The exhibition includes work by Pandora Sellars - one of the world's most important and influential botanical painters - and her former student Masumi Yamanaka, now a renowned artist in her own right.
Plants Portrayed is on show alongside a second exhibition: For The Time Being.
