A Victorian Naturalist: Beatrix Potter's Drawings from the Armitt Collection
Description of A Victorian Naturalist: Beatrix Potter's Drawings
Given its not insubstantial price this book has to be present as one for the serious student of the work of Beatrix Potter. In recent years she has come to be seen as a much more significant artist and naturalist than was previously the case. The Beatrix Potter collection at the Armitt Museum in Ambleside bears strong testimony to the correctness of this change of perception. This book shows many of the exceptional natural history watercolours produced by this amazing lady.
