Biography:

Nathaniel Wallich ( 1786-1854)

Wallich was the
director of the Calcutta Botanic Gardens for over 30 years. He trained
native plant collectors and sent them into parts of the Himalayas which
were closed to Europeans.  In doing so many hardy plants were introduced
into England and are now grown in many gardens. He also trained native
artists to make botanical drawings and one of these was Vishnu Prasadva
who accompanied him on many journeys. “These Indian draughtsman’s images
are so vivid and vigorous that they make most other botanical series
look insipid by comparison”. Wilfred Hunt.
