Arthur Harry Church: The Anatomy of Flowers

David Mabberley

Art of Nature series

Natural History Museum / Merrell Holberton

2000

"In this, the first full account of the artist, described by House and Garden as "lush and sensual gorgeous", David Mabberley discusses Church's remarkable output in the context of his scientific work and of the biological science of his era. Most of the drawings in this volume remained unpublished while Church was alive and are published here for the first time; they demonstrate the modernity of his technique and style, which sometimes recall the work of Georgia O'Keeffe."
