Description

An exhibition of exquisite paintings of South African wildflowers by Lady Cynthia Tait (1894-1962), curated by Mary van Blommestein of the UCT Irma Stern Museum. These vibrant watercolours have been brought from Guernsey to Kirstenbosch, where many of them were painted, with the generous sponsorship of Rickety Bridge Winery and Gateway Publishing. The exhibition is hosted by the Kirstenbosch Branch of the Botanical Society of SA and will also include botanical art by members of the Western Cape branch of Botanical Artists Association of Southern Africa(BAASA).
