Truth and Beauty by Ferdinand Bauer
Ferdinand Bauer was an Austrian born botanical draughtsman.
At the turn of the 19th century, he was one of six scientists selected to join Captain Matthew Flinders in the scientific expedition that would chart Australia’s coastline and document its flora and fauna.
The Truth & Beauty exhibition, co-curated by Fiona Salmon, Tony Kanellos and Madeline Reece, draws on the McCarthy Collection of prints and illustrated publications by and about Bauer.
The exhibition will be brought to life by the partnership between Flinders University Art Museum and the Santos Museum of Economic Botany, Botanic Gardens of South Australia.
Opening hours are Tuesday to Friday, 11am to 4pm; Saturday and Sunday, 12pm to 4pm.
