American Landscape

Here's another summery exhibition to cheer us up. From 10 May to 25 November the British Museum in London will be hosting North American Landscape: Kew at the British Museum. This free botanical display will allow you to "Travel up from the Florida swamps, through the Missouri prairie to the forests of New England and Canada". Plantings will include colourful daisies, maples, lupins, echinacea, orange coneflowers, black walnut, tulip tree and even carnivorous pitcher plants. Shown is Perennial Lupin (Lupinus perennis) with a bumblebee. CLICK to find out more.

How annoying that we have to wait that long for the exhibition. It looks terrific and makes you want to visit the real landscapes. You can walk right into the paintings the way you can with all great art. Thank you London Art News for that. More please. They were happy.
