Mrs Delany Christmas Botanicals Cards

The British Museum

Exquisite reproductions of paper-cut collages of Winter plants created by Mary Delany (1700–88). The designs comprise an Amaryllis Formosissima (known as a Jacobean Lily) from c.1775; mistletoe from 1776, plus undated studies of holly and a white hellebore. It was after her husband's, Dr Delany's, death in 1768 she began spending her summers with the Duchess of Portland at Bulstrode in Buckinghamshire and it was there that she began her remarkable series of flower collages - or paper ‘mosaicks’, as she called them - that were bequeathed to The British Museum by her descendent Lady Llanover in 1895.

4 designs.
6" x 4".
Printed ‘Season’s Greetings’.
