Description
Royal Horticultural Society
An elegant showcase of botanical paintings of bulbous plants recorded and collected by Rear-Admiral John Paul Wellington Furse (1904-78). Born in Surrey he was related to revered botanical painter Marianne North (1830-90). Upon his retirement from the Royal Navy in 1959 he undertook expeditions to Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Russia and Afghanistan collecting bulbs. The Society’s Lindley Library has a collection of over 800 watercolours by Furse, awarded the Society’s Victoria Medal of Honour. The exquisite weekly illustrations in the diary feature Crown Imperial Fritillaries (fritillaries being a specialism of Furse) but also daffodils, lilies, colchicums, irises and many other varieties of bulbous flowers.
