Description
Mary Delany (English, 1700–1788)
Parnassia Palustris Grass of Parnassus (detail), 1776

Often mistaken for watercolors, Mary Delany’s botanicals are carefully constructed paper collages. The artist cut minute pieces of colored paper and glued them to create scientifically accurate—and gorgeous— botanicals.
