Clara Maria Pope began her career as an artist’s model but soon assumed the role of the artist herself. Pope developed her talents as a botanical illustrator and taught as an art instructor to women of the royal family. Her contributions to Samuel Curtis’ famous and longstanding Botanical Magazine as well as his 1819 publication Monograph of the Genus Camellia earned her much praise as an artist.
