A deep appreciation for nature’s inherent wonders and beauty infuses in the upcoming Fine Art – Antique Engravings & Lithographs – Works on Paper auction offered by Trillium. Early botanical and naturalist drawings shine in the sale, with 200 works of fine art opening a window into the Romantic era.
Some of the standout lots include engravings from Dr. Robert John Thorton’s dramatic studies of plants: images of the American cowslip and the Indian reed are shown in colorful detail, each a clear subject of their scene. This focused auction does extend beyond botanicals, however, with vivid depictions of Native Americans and complex maps of both the continental United States and Europe.
