Lecture by Lynn Parker

Accurate depictions of typical specimens are indispensable for plant recognition, and artists have been employed at Kew ever since Sir Joseph Banks appointed the great Francis Bauer for this purpose in 1790.  Other works have been acquired by gift or purchase, and the collection now comprises over 200,000 items.  Lynn Parker is Assistant Illustrations and Artefacts Curator at Kew. 

Monday evenings, 7-8 pm (6.30 for a glass of wine), The Gallery, 70-77 Cowcross Street (Entrance: through courtyard to far end, down stairs), London EC1M 6EL
