Women of Flowers: Botanical Art in Australia from the 1830s to the 1960s pays tribute to the female colonial artists who drew and painted the indigenous wildflowers and plants of Australia. It focuses on the rich holdings of albums, sketchbooks and paintings in the Pictures Collection of the National Library of Australia, as well as works from other major collecting institutions. Each chapter presents a short biography of an artist, followed by a 'portfolio' section of images, in a similar layout to the previous successful title Brush with Birds. Artists include: Marianne Collinson Campbell, Ellis Rowan, Dorothy English Paty, Ida McComish, and Louisa Ann Meredith.
