Rosa Catherine Fiveash (1854 - 1938)

Rosa Catherine Fiveash (1854-1938) Fiveash was a botanical artist, born in Adelaide, the youngest child of Robert Archibald Fiveash, businessman and superintendent of the Blinman and Yudanamutana copper-mines, and his wife Margaret, nee Rees. She was trained by Miss A. Benham and at the Adelaide School of Art and Design 1881-88, and then taught art privately and at Tormore House School in North Adelaide for many years. In 1882 Rosa was invited to illustrate The Forest Flora of South Australia. Nine parts of this work were published in 1882-90 but the series was never completed. Fiveash drew 32 of the 45 published lithographs.
