In part 6 of the series, he writes about five pioneering British botanical artists of the 20th century: Matilda Smith, Lilian Snelling, Arabella Elizabeth Roupell, Elinor Frances Vallentin, and Harriet Isabel Adams. Learn about their lives and the books they published, and then visit the Miller Library to see their wonderful art work up close.
