Mushroom Masterpieces

Five years before the first edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit Beatrix Potter had a paper on mycology presented at the Royal Society. For Potter art and science were not mutually exclusive, her beautiful drawings of fungi are not whimsical but accurate to nature. Anne Parouty and Lukas Large explore the meeting of arts and science in Potter’s work.

£5 including mushroom soup and a roll.
