Discover the exquisite paintings and studies of one of Britain's most accomplished botanical, wildlife and natural history artists.

For the first time, works uncovered by a long-time friend when clearing Booth's studio after his death will be on public display. Seen together in Watts Contemporary Gallery, these works offer an insight into the practice and working life of a reclusive artist.

A plantsman as well as an artist, Booth would cultivate flowers, plants and botanical specimens at home in the garden before painting them in the studio. It was through this extensive and painstaking process that he developed an expert knowledge of his subject, a defining feature of his work.

Booth's work is held internationally in major public collections, including the Fitzwilliam Museum, the Ulster Museum, The Hunt Institute in Pittsburgh, and Leeds City Art Gallery, as well as many private collections in Europe, America, Japan and the Middle East.
