Summary
Mary Granville Pendarves Delany (1700-1788) was the witty, beautiful and talented daughter of a minor branch of a powerful family. At the age of 72, she created a new art form, mixed-media collage. Over the next decade, she created an astonishing 985 botanically-correct, breathtaking cut-paper flowers, now housed in the British Museum and referred to as the Botanica Delanica
Summary
Poet Molly Peacock has woven parallels in her own life around the story of Mrs. Mary Delany (1700-1788)--who at the age of seventy-two created a new art form, mixed-media collage--and, in doing so, has made this biography into an examination of the nature of creativity and art.
