Images of Nature: The Bauer Brothers

The art of Franz and Ferdinand Bauer was praised by the poet and botanist Johann Goethe as the perfect expression of the aims of botanical illustration. This book examines the contrasting lives of Franz (1758-1840), who was the resident artist at Kew Gardens for 50 years, and Ferdinand (1760-1826), who led a life of travel as a natural history artist and participated in the HMS Investigator’s historic voyage to Australia in the early nineteenth century.


It is illustrated with images from the superb archive of Bauer drawings at the Natural History Museum Library, many of which have never been published before. These include beautiful and finely detailed watercolours of flowering plants collected from across the world, pioneering microscopical drawings of plant anatomy, and pictures of the newly discovered animals from the coasts of Australia. The book is published to tie-in with a new art exhibition opening at the Natural History Museum in November 2015.
