From Phillip, A Voyage to Botany Bay

Artist:

Ann Latham (1772-1835)

Ann Latham was John Latham’s daughter, and she assisted her father in painting birds, mammals and butterflies for her father. She also recorded the first Australian bird species sent to London. The watercolours were made before her marriage in 1795 to a surgeon in Winchester. After 1795 Ann stopped helping her father.
