EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning print showcases the vibrant beauty of Scarlet and yellow flowered greater Indian cress, also known as nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus). The handcolored copperplate engraving by James Sowerby captures the intricate details of this medicinal plant, which was featured in William Woodville and Sir William Jackson Hooker's "Medical Botany" in 1832. Sowerby, a renowned botanical illustrator, dedicated his life to documenting the natural world. His meticulous drawings brought over 2,500 plants to life for Smith's monumental work "English Botany" among many other notable projects. In this particular piece, he expertly portrays the scarlet and yellow blossoms of the greater Indian cress with precision and artistry. The print transports us back to 19th century England when botanical illustrations were highly valued for their scientific accuracy and aesthetic appeal. It serves as a testament to both Sowerby's talent as an artist and his contribution to our understanding of plant species. The Scarlet and yellow flowered greater Indian cress is not only visually striking but also possesses herbal medicinal properties. Its inclusion in "Medical Botany" highlights its importance in traditional medicine practices during that era. This antique print from Bridgeman Images offers a glimpse into the rich history of botany while celebrating the beauty found within nature itself.
