Margaret Stones (1920- ), botanical artist, served for twenty-five years as the principal illustrator for Curtis’s Botanical Magazine and worked under commission for the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, England.

 

Special Collections holds six original watercolors of Northern California plants, painted by Stones in March-April 1987, while she was visiting California. We are presenting this small exhibit on the thirtieth anniversary of that visit.
