Capturing Flora is a handsome historical survey of the botanical illustration of Australian plants, from the time of Dampier to 2012. This sumptuous publication accompanied the exhibition of the same name at the Art Gallery of Ballarat late in 2012, and subsequently at Sydney, Armidale and Cairns. Five essays explore the way Australia's flora has been captured and celebrated by artists for over 300 years. This lavishly illustrated book features sketches, drawings, watercolours and prints of Australian native plants from artists such as Pierre-Joseph Redoute, Ferdinand Lucas Bauer, Henry Andrews and Ellis Rowan.
