Overview

Eucalypts are an icon of the Australian environment and it is perhaps not surprising that we have produced an abundance of talented artists that have appreciated their beauty and form. In addition botanists have found eucalypts a challenging pursuit and in studying them they have called on the artist’s talents to illustrate their structure. This book portrays both the skills of the botanical artist as well as those that simply see the exquisite splendour of the blossoms and the intriguing shape of the gumnuts. From the time Sir Joseph Banks on Cook’s epic voyage in 1770 collected specimens for the ship’s artist, Sydney Parkinson to the present day highly awarded artist Margaret Stones, eucalypts have fascinated painters and the general public. Over this 250 year period, the various styles are represented in this volume showing species from the arid interior to the tropics and the uniquely shaped and colourful plants from the south-west of Western Australia. The Australian wildlife is not forgotten as the parrots and honeyeaters that feed on the eucalypt blossoms are beautifully depicted by Ebenezer Gostelow.
