Gloucestershire Society for Botanical Illustration
The Finnis Scott Foundation is delighted to make the 2020 Botanical Art Prize of £10,000 to the Gloucestershire Society for Botanical Illustration.
Congratulations to them.
The Prize is to aid in the staging of an exhibition, ‘Botanical Treasures – inspiration from nature in porcelain and on paper’, in collaboration with the Royal Worcester Museum. This will be based on the work of Stuart Lafford, an artist working for the Royal Worcester Porcelain Factory who, as a practising botanical artist, had taught many of the Gloucestershire Society’s members. The exhibition will draw on original drawings, porcelain, and pattern books in the Factory’s archives, and will be staged at the Royal Worcester Museum.
