Smithsonian Catalog of Botanical Illustrations

Based in the Department of Botany at the National Museum of Natural History, Alice Tangerini has compiled a preliminary list of 500 botanical illustrations from three plant families: Bromeliaceae, Cactaceae, and Melastomataceae. Another 2500 illustrations will be added to the database in the future. Both botanists and those interested in the field of botanical illustration will appreciate the beautiful images and the brief biographies of the illustrators themselves. Each black-and-white or color illustration contains information on the subject, the client for whom it was prepared, and the publication in which it first appeared.
