All change!

Posted by Andrea Hart Apr 12, 2011

As the new Images of Nature, art gallery has been open for 3 months now, it was time to install the second rotation of drawings from our Reeves collection of Chinese botanical and zoological drawings. It all went very smoothly and all of the illustrations and their description panels were in place with some time to spare before the Museum opened its doors to the Easter holiday crowds.

 

Below is a small selection of the new drawings that are now on display and are freely available to view. We hope you like them!

It focuses on the Library's amazing Reeves artwork collection and coincides with the launch of the Museum's Images of Nature gallery which opened in January 2011.
