This exhibition looks at the ways in which self-taught naturalists and artists record and observe the natural world around them from the sixteenth century to the present, examining the intersections of artistic and scientific interest.

Depictions of Britain’s countryside and its native plant and animal life are explored through nearly three hundred objects. Selected primarily from the Center’s collections, ranging from centuries-old manuscripts to contemporary artists’ books, and including invited contemporary artists.

A sketchbook, two watercolours and an oil painting are exhibited by Charlotte Verity.
