The Duchess of Beaufort's Flowers
The Duchess of Beaufort's Flowers
Cottesloe, Gloria and Hunt, Doris
The flower paintings that were commissioned by the first Duchess of Beaufort in the early eighteenth century have been kept carefully by the Beaufort family at Badminton House ever since. These beautiful and vividly detailed paintings, now reproduced for the first time, retain their subtle colouring even after nearly three hundred years. Thirty-two paintings have been carefully selected from the two volumes which testify to the artists' talent and the Duchess's dedication. they give a glimpse of a remarkable collection of botanical paintings which still retain their charm and interest three centuries later.
