(1837-42) Engraving on paper, hand coloured. 
This beautiful image is the hero picture for the Art Gallery of Ballarat’s upcoming exhibition, Capturing Flora, which opens this Tuesday. Ballarat is in the midst of a spring fling, with its botanic gardens about to bloom, spring racing at the start gates and a flurry of farmers markets and design exchanges.
