The Flowering Amazon, Margaret Mee Paintings from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew by Ruth Stiff

Margaret Mee’s lavish paintings of orchids and bromeliads from the Amazonian forests represent more than the life and spirit of a talented artist drawn to adventure. Her eloquent and precisely painted visions of the vanishing rainforest lay vibrant testimony to the struggle between nature and commerce, thus working to preserve the wild habitats she painted and loved. She is a twentieth-century embodiment of the artist-explorer, with the added virtue of social consciousness. In this regard, her work lays claim to not only artistic merit and scientific accuracy, but stands as an historic witness to preserving a habitat rich in botanical diversity.
