Belsterling Blooms: Selections from the Louise B. Belsterling Botanical Collection
Belsterling Blooms aims to shed light on the breadth of botanical material found within the Louise B. Belsterling Collection. Visitors to the Nebula Gallery can view a curated selection of plates from four titles ranging from the mid-eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth century. The highlighted images have been chosen for their hand-colored illustrations and remarkable vibrancy. All displayed plates can be found within the Collection, although they have been digitally enlarged and augmented for presentation.
The plates included in the exhibit are from the following titles:
The Ladies’ Flower-Garden of Ornamental Annuals, 1840
Flora Londinensis, 1777
The Compleat Florist, 1747
The New Botanic Garden, 1812
