Victoria Crowe: Portraits and Plant Memory in The Wider Landscape.

This talk by Professor David Ingram OBE, VMH, ScD, FRSE will explore, through discussion of Professor Ingram’s own experiences of Victoria Crowe and her work, a synergy between art and botany, conservation and gardens. Thus A Shepherd’s Life, the painting of his own portrait for a Cambridge College and the project Plant Memory will be set in the wider ‘landscape’ of Victoria’s portraits, watercolours, oils and other works. Professor Ingram’s current work embraces: plant science; food security; conservation of biodiversity; and the synergy between 19th century and modern art, botany and garden making. He is currently Honorary Professor, Edinburgh and Lancaster Universities; earlier roles have included Regius Keeper (Director), Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh and Master, St Catharine’s College, Cambridge.

Booking is essential.
