Art Collection for Sale

This is a collection of 186 lifesize watercolour paintings in an A3 format, of all the named native orchids of Western Australia. These are the originals of watercolours reproduced in the publication Orchids of Western Australia. From 39 genera, there are over 400 species, many of which have only recently been described. It includes the little-known orchids of the Kimberley and several hybrids, mostly within the Caladenias.

The paintings are divided into 2 sections. There is an 'in situ' painting for each of the genera (40 paintings) which shows an example of the genus growing in its natural habitat (ie, on a log, in a swamp, on granite rocks, in a vine thicket, etc.) The rest of the paintings show size and colour variations for each of the species.

The collection in its entirety is for sale. The paintings have been done over a period of 16 years and with the assistance of botanists Andrew Brown and Kingsley Dixon. For expressions of interest or more information, email us at info@botanicagallery.com.au.
