If you are in London go North

If you are in London, please visit the Kew Gardens. The Marianne North Gallery reopened October 8th after an extensive renovation. Marianne North Gallery is one of Britain’s most important galleries for botanical art containing 832 paintings produced by Marianne North during 13 years of travel around the world. Her painting style was quite unique: after a rough sketch with pen and ink she applied the pigment squeezed directly from the tubes. Apart from the gallery building itself also many of North’s paintings have been restored.
You can access the digital gallery of the 832 paintings here.
