EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning chromolithograph showcases the exquisite beauty of the Cat's Tail or Fox Brush Orchid, Aerides quinquevulnera. The intricate details of this rare orchid are brilliantly captured in this botanical illustration by Harriet Stewart Miner, which was published in the first American color plate book on orchids, "Orchids, the Royal Family of Plants," by Lee & Shepard in Boston in 1885. Miner's groundbreaking work as a woman botanist during a time when women's roles in science were limited, made significant contributions to the field of orchidology. The Cat's Tail Orchid, also known as Aerides quinquevulnera or Aerides quinquevulnerum, is native to the Philippines and is characterized by its long, slender, cat-like tail-like inflorescence and small, white flowers with purple veins. The chromolithograph, produced by the Hatch Company, masterfully brings out the vibrant colors and delicate textures of the orchid, making it a true work of art. This beautiful illustration not only highlights the natural beauty of the Cat's Tail Orchid but also serves as a testament to the remarkable achievements of Harriet Stewart Miner and her pioneering work in documenting the diverse world of orchids. The intricate details of the illustration continue to captivate and inspire botanists, horticulturists, and nature enthusiasts alike, making it a valuable addition to any collection of botanical art.
