Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
Pictures of palm trees growing under an 1847 South American sun. Plates from A.D. d’Orbigny’s 1847 work, “Voyage dans l’Amérique Méridionale” (Volume 7). At that time, almost all voyages of exploration included artists who sketched and painted what they saw so almost surely these are drawn from life.
On a voyage to see how much mileage I can get from the creative ability and eye for images that my family thought was useless. On line art curator, fiction writer and now blogger. Historian's daughter. Follow me . . .even I have no idea where I'm going next.
