    Austrian natural history painter Ferdinand Bauer is widely regarded as one of the greatest-ever botanical artists. His sumptuous and extraordinarily realistic depictions of flowers, trees, birds and animals saw him hand-picked to accompany Matthew Flinders on his 1801–05 circumnavigation of Australia. This book includes botanical illustrations from this trip, as well as from his time in Greece and the Mediterranean. Bauer pioneered an innovative, systematic approach to illustration, in which he applied colour coding to his field sketches – the original ‘paint by numbers’ technique. Filled with detailed, full-colour reproductions of Bauer’s art, this is a beautifully produced study of the artist’s life and work.
