The exhibition catalog Botanical Art into the Third Millenium has arrived from Italy!

This catalog was published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name now on view at Museo della Grafica in Pisa, Italy. This exhibition features botanical art from all over the world and will be on view through July 15, 2013.

In an announcement about the exhibition, curators Lucia Tongiorgi Tomasi and Alessandro Tosi write:

At the dawn of the third millennium, botanical painting constitutes a realm of expression of astonishing variety and vitality. In a tradition that has continued without interruption since the Renaissance, when artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Albrecht Dürer inaugurated a new vision and a new manner of interpreting the natural world, down through the centuries with the work of such great European artists as Jacopo Ligozzi, Maria Sibylla Merian, Nicolas Robert and Pierre-Joseph Redouté, the universe of Flora has provided art with some of its most enduring and fascinating motifs.

The aim of Botanical Art into the Third Millennium is to provide an overview of the latest and most original work being produced in this genre, in a geographic dimension without limits and reflecting the unique diversity and specificity of local environments.
