The exhibition presents watercolors and drawings by the Community of Artists of Botanical Painting and Illustration (SABA).
Botanical illustration requires from the artist not only skill, but also knowledge of the morphology and ecology of plants. This genre is distinguished by uncompromising accuracy, allowing to determine the depicted plant up to the main taxonomic unit - species. Botanical illustration gives us a chance to stop time, peering into the perfect creation of nature.
Botanical illustration originates in medieval pharmacopoeias and herbalists. Often they contained fantastic images of foreign plants, which were known only from stories, and in reality non-existent. During the Renaissance, artists and researchers began to study and depict plants from nature, rather than copying them on samples. The heyday of botanical illustration can be called the XVIII - XIX centuries. In the 21st century, artists pay more attention to originality of compositions, color solutions, combining various techniques, “refreshing” a strict botanical illustration, bringing a plot and mood to it.
The exhibition will be organized master classes in botanical painting and drawing, lectures and excursions.
