Painting Paradise Exhibition at the Queen’s Gallery

By July 2, 2015 England
Queen's Gallery Exhibition

This garden-inspired exhibition was rich with examples of beautiful botanical art, but this exquisite book was a standout for us. By Alberto Sangorski, this presentation copy of Francis Bacon’s essay Of Gardens (1625) was created for Queen Alexandra. Dated 1904, the manuscript is vellum gold and bodycolour, and bound in vellum.
