The Stansbery Collection for Botanical Art

Through the generosity of Will and Kay Stansbery, the BRIT library offers access to a collection of books focusing on botanical art and illustration, and art history. The intent of the collection is to serve as a reference and instructional tool for artists, art patrons, and botanists. Using botanical art to serve as a bridge between art and science can provide a broader understanding of both communities.
