Bodleian display showcases scientific research into Bauer's botanical masterpieces. Some of the finest botanical and zoological paintings in the world are going on display at the Weston Library.

Bodleian display showcases scientific research into Bauer's botanical masterpieces

Painting by numbers, a new display running from 29 April to 9 July, brings together beautiful watercolours and field sketches by the celebrated central European botanical artist, Ferdinand Bauer (1760-1826), including incredible paintings of marine animals which have never been displayed before. The display focuses on Bauer's ground-breaking two-year expedition to the eastern Mediterranean with John Sibthorp (1758-96), Sherardian Professor of Botany at Oxford, and the current research by the Bodleian Libraries Heritage Science team to unravel Bauer's painting by numbers system. The numerical notes on Bauer's botanical sketches indicate that he assigned different colours different numbers, and marked these numbers on his sketches, so when he later turned these into more detailed watercolours, he would know which colour to use where.

Flore pittoresque et médicale des Antilles, ou, Histoire naturelle des plantes usuelles des colonies françaises, anglaises, espagnoles, et portugaises / Spring into the Fagel Collection. By Regina Whelan Richardson Spring is here and time for a close-up of some of the spring flowers blossoming in the Fagel Collection – the former library of the Fagel family of the Netherlands, which is now part of the Research Collections in Trinity College Library.

Spring into the Fagel Collection

The progress of botany was greatly assisted by the development of the microscope, which introduced the era of plant anatomy. The middle and upper classes, and professional families such as the Fagels, who were lawyers and government ministers in The Hague, took an interest in microscopy as an educational and leisure pursuit. The Fagel Library was also a working library, providing its owners with a knowledge base over a wide range of subjects and reflecting contemporary thought, events and developments including scientific research.

For centuries Japan was inaccessible to foreigners. Nowadays Japanese plants are to be found in gardens around the globe, but only 200 years ago they were virtually unknown to the outside world. Paintings in the new Flora Japonica exhibition Exhibition highlights Flora Japonica showcases amazingly detailed historic drawings and paintings of Japan’s native flora by Tomitaro Makino, known as the father of Japanese botany.

Biodiversity Heritage Library on Instagram: “Papaya (Carica papaya). #SciArt by Berthe Hoola van Nooten for her book, Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Choisis de l'ille de Java (1880) for…” Cécile Pfulb-Kastner. Cécile Pfulb-Kastner was a French botanical artist and lithographer who illustrated Volume 1 (1906) and Volume 2 (1908) of Nouvelle Flore Coloriée de Poche des Alpes et des Pyrénées by Charles Flahault (1852-1935). Naming conventions for the 19th and 20th centuries often did not include the first names of French women in publications, but instead they were identified by their titles, Mademoiselle (Mlle) and Madame (Mme).

Note the changes in Pfulb-Kastner’s name from Volume 1 to Volume 2. These naming conventions, along with the cultural taboo of women working during this time, make researching early women in science a challenge. Pfulb-Kastner is no exception, and so far, I have only found mention of her in bibliographies of the works mentioned above. Women in Historical SciArt. This spreadsheet contains many of the amazing women who contributed to the advancement of science through their scientific illustrations.

If the women were identified on their artwork, they may have signed with their initials, their married name by husband (i.e. “Mrs. John Doe”), or their maiden name without a first name (“Miss Doe”); please note that there are other variations in signatures. Sometimes, they were only identified in the Preface of the work or even not at all. I have included their full names in the American convention: first, middle, maiden, married to provide the greatest range of possibilities in how they may have been mentioned.

In addition to their names and lifespans, I have included the subject areas in which they created, and most importantly, I have included links to their artwork identified in the Flickr account and Catalogue of Biodiversity Heritage Library.

Whilst marveling at the beauty and versatility of this diverse range of plants it is worth considering the wonder they inspired during the fervour of orchid-growing in 19th century Britain. Enthusiasts and scientists were anxious to document and illustrate these curious plants, and some highly illustrated publications were produced as a result. 1 - Nouvelle flore coloriée de poche des Alpes et des Pyrénées.
