EVENT: Film Screening: Kew's Forgotten Queen
Join us for a screening of Kew’s Forgotten Queen, a documentary celebrating the work of one of the most prolific botanical artists of the Victorian age – Marianne North. At a time when women barely left their parlour rooms, North defied convention as she travelled alone navigating the world twice, from Borneo to Brazil to Japan, in her pursuit of documenting every living plant on her canvas.
Marianne North (24 October 1830 – 30 August 1890) was a prominent biologist and botanical artist, widely renowned for her plant and landscape paintings, plant discoveries, writings, and the creation of her gallery at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
