Stansbery Collection For Botanical Art



Stansbery Collection For Botanical Art

The Stansbery Collection

Through the generosity of Will and Kay Stansbery, the BRIT library offers access to acollection of books focusing on botanical illustration instruction and art history. The intent of the collection is to serve as a

reference and instructional tool for artists, art patrons, and botanists. Using botanical art to serve as a bridge between art and science can provide a broader understanding of both communities.
