See a selection of 34 original contemporary botanical illustrations from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Botanical illustration is a delicate combination of art and science: a true and lifelike representation of a plant that provides a visually striking image.

Mottisfont’s exhibition showcases intricately detailed and colourful illustrations of flowers, leaves and trees – including some varieties that you’ll find out in the grounds, such as sweet chestnut.

The exhibition includes work by Pandora Sellars – one of the world’s most important and influential botanical painters – and her former student Masumi Yamanaka, now a renowned artist in her own right.

Plants Portrayed also includes works by Lucy Smith, Christabel King, Margaret Stones, Andrew Brown, Joanna Langhorne, Rachel Pedder-Smith and Ann Farrer.
