    Renowned botanical illustrator Dick Rauh, a fellow of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Florilegium Society, has drawn a number of trees in the living collection, including specimens from the Garden’s important bonsai collection. Informed by a deep understanding of botany and plant morphology, Rauh’s work brings to light the architectural beauty of plants. Displayed alongside the artist’s botanical drawings and paintings will be his chapbooks, which contain additional plant illustrations as well as poems.
