The mid-17th to mid-18th centuries saw the Golden Age of scientific illustration. In this age of curiosity, exploration, and experiment, the artist complimented the scientific process. Georg Dionysius Ehret (1708-1770) was one of the most talented artists of this era. This image shows a Magnolia from Ehret’s Plantae Selectae of 1772. Magnolias were a favourite of Ehret and he was said to have taken a daily walk to watch the progress of Magnolia grandiflora
