Elizabeth Blackwell Art

British, 1707-1758

Elizabeth Blackwell was a Scottish botanical illustrator and author who was best known as both, the artist and engraver for the plates of A Curious Herbal, published between 1737–39. The book illustrated many odd-looking and unknown plants from the New World and was designed as a reference work on medicinal plants, for the use of physicians and apothecaries.
