Faithful to Marianne

Cultivated Flowers, painted in Jamaica

We had such a good time researching our July/August feature on 19th-century British artist Marianne North, and the restoration of her gallery at Kew Gardens, we thought we'd show you a little bit more. A tremendous amount of work went into the reinstallation, not only by Kew's incredible team, but by staff from London's Plowden & Smith, conservators to Queen Elizabeth.

 (see... science can be fun!)

 (is that Hugh Grant researching a role?)
