Just as Frida Kahlo took inspiration from the natural world for her paintings, so too have other artists looked towards nature for ideas. While some artists created meticulous, scientifically accurate renderings of plants, others abstracted the botanical world in order to evoke certain sentiments. This presentation will feature pieces from The University of Arizona Museum of Art’s permanent collection ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day, including works by Martin Johnson Heade, John James Audubon, Georgia O’Keeffe, Tony Fitzpatrick, and Barbara Rogers. Olivia Miller, Curator of Exhibitions and Education at The University of Arizona Museum of Art and current Ph.D. student in art history.
