Special Exhibition “Orchids Blossom – Botanical Art Collections from the University of Tokyo”
Ends in 5 days
Ever since the early days of the University of Tokyo in the Meiji period (1868–1912), the university has produced botanical art to support and further its research on flora. These images of plants painted accurately from direct observations of the subject matter had a scientific value that was essential to the development of botany and, in their pictorial quality achieved by the skill of the illustrators, are academic resources that also have artistic value. This special exhibition brings together examples of orchid illustrations from the collections of the University of Tokyo. The eighth in the Intermediatheque Natural History Series, the exhibition offers visitors a superb opportunity to appreciate both aesthetically and scientifically the manifold forms of orchids.
