Marianne North - English Botanical Artist - 1830-1890

She travelled all over the world for 15 years to all 7 Continents leaving behind some 1200 beautifully coloured - and botanically accurate - paintings. The Marianne North Gallery in Kew Gardens in London holds some 800 of them. It's a visually astonishing display which Marianne North herself designed, and includes panelling below the tightly packed paintings that includes timber samples from every Continent.
