Before Bartram: Artist-Naturalist Mark Catesby
Mark Catesby surveyed Florida sixty-two years before William Bartram. This lecture is an overview of the over 200 watercolors and drawings which, along with field notes and hundreds of preserved specimens constituted one of the earliest and certainly one of the most comprehensive systematic studies of the flora and fauna of southeastern North America.
This event is funded by the Florida Humanities Florida Talks: At Home! program.
