Met Museum launches major web resource offering access to hundreds of its publications | Art and Art History | Scoop.it
The Metropolitan Museum of Art today launched MetPublications, a major online resource that offers unparalleled in-depth access to the Museum’s renowned print and online publications, covering art, art history, archaeology, conservation, and collecting.

 

Beginning with nearly 650 titles published from 1964 to the present, this new addition to the Met's website, will continue to expand and could eventually offer access to nearly all books, Bulletins, and Journals published by the Metropolitan Museum since its founding in 1870, as well as online publications. Readers may also locate works of art from the Met’s collections that are included within MetPublications and access the most recent information about these works in the Collections section of the Museum’s website.

Flora Delanica: Art and Botany in Mrs. Delany’s “paper mosaicks”

Flora Delanica: Art and Botany in Mrs. Delany’s “paper mosaicks” | Art and Art History | Scoop.it

Pancratium Maritinum

 

For much of her long life, Mary Delany (1700-1788) was in many ways a typical 18th century society woman of accomplishments. She was an excellent “amateur” artist and also mastered the arts of japanning, silhouettes and embroidery. She was a prolific letter writer and, influenced by the work of Samuel Richardson, wrote a novel, Marianne, which she illustrated. Mrs. Delany was also an avid student of botany, zoology and the natural sciences. But it was at the age of 72 that Mary Delany began the work that brought her lasting renown: her Flora Delanica—nearly 1000 botanical collages that she completed over the following decade. These “paper mosaicks,” as she called them, are incredibly intricate and delicate, the level of detail and botanical accuracy is stunning.
