Also includes loosely inserted offprint of article from a conference on The natural sciences and the arts published in Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, n.s. 22, by Paul Hutton, with the title Realism and tradition in ethnological and natural history imagery of the 16th century (fine condition). The book is well illustrated with both colour and monochrome photographs, and covers all forms of art except oil paintings. The authors examine the three main motives for painting flowers: scientific curiosity, delight in decoration, and a desire to express artistic ideals. The chapter on 'Art and Botany' is particularly informative.
