The early part of the nineteenth century saw a rise in the popularity of botanical and natural history drawing, attributed in part to a growing interest in all things to do with the natural world.
In Beverley, a woman named Elizabeth Lambert (1791 – 1830) was captivated by this popular hobby. Elizabeth produced hundreds of finely detailed drawings and watercolours over the course of her life. For many years, Elizabeth’s portfolio of surviving artworks was stored away in California, in the care of a descendent.
Birds, Blooms and Butterflies displays for the first time these beautiful artworks and explores Elizabeth’s life.
