Senecio Hectori - Senecio Robusta - Antique Print from 1888

Genuine antique
dated:

1888

Description:

New Zealand botanical by Georgina Hetley ( 1832-1898).

Artist:

Georgina Hetley (1832-1898)
Hetley was first inspired to paint plants “growing in their native state” after hearing a talk in Auckland by Thomas Cheeseman about a collecting trip he had made to mountains near Nelson, Arthur’s Pass and the Otira Gorge, Canterbury. By 1884 she had made a start, and Cheeseman helped to identify the plants she had painted. Thomas Kirk also gave assistance. The Government gave aid in the form of free travel passes on the railways, and the Union Steamship Company issued her with passes for their steamers. Sir Robert Stout, Premier and Minister of Education, promised to purchase copies of the book for public schools and libraries.
