International Series Catalogues

The Institute established the International Exhibition of Botanical Art & Illustration series in 1964 with the hope of supporting and encouraging contemporary botanical artists. Every three years, the International series features the works of talented botanical artists from around the world. Collectively, the catalogues are the most comprehensive record available of 20th–21st-century botanical artists and illustrators.

 The catalogues feature watercolors, drawings and prints by and portraits, biographies and bibliographies of contemporary artists and a cumulative index of those represented thus far in the International series.
