📙 Banksia Lady: Celia Rosser, Botanical Artist by Carolyn Landon — epub download


This is the story of Celia Rosser, the internationally acclaimed botanical illustrator, who ultimately dedicated her life to painting the entire genus of Banksia, the only artist to have done such a thing. Celia's dedication to the task put her at the center of the Monash Banksia Project, underwritten by Monash University (Australia) for 25 years and culminating in the production of an extraordinary three-volume florilegium that became one of the great books published in the 20th century. This is also the story of the emergence of an artist who grew up in difficult circumstances during the Great Depression and pursued her art partly as a way of protecting herself from the harsher side of life. The narrative stays focused on the path of the artist, as Celia grows up, develops her talent, and learns to understand and take advantage of it. The story follows her struggles to pursue her artistic passion while fulfilling the expectations of women in 1950s to subordinate themselves to their husbands as wives and mothers. In telling this story of Celia Rosser's unparalleled talent and extraordinary achievement, the book explores the history of botanical illustration, botany, academia, gardens and their herbarium, and Australia's place in changing the shape of the world. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO *** "Landon's biography captures both the spirit of the woman and the momentousness of her artistic achievement." -- Fiona Gruber, Australian Book Review, October 2015 (Series: Biography) [Subject: Biography, Art, Botany, History, Australian Studies, Women's Studies, Gardening]
