Treasures of the Art Collection

Our art collection consists primarily of original botanical illustrations. These are plant portraits that combine scientific information with expert draughtsmanship and beautiful presentation. Botanical illustration offers an immediately accessible way of understanding and appreciating a plant.

The collection features renowned artists such as Claude Aubriet, Georg Dionysius Ehret, Franz Bauer and August Wilhelm Sievert. In addition there are special paintings to honour royal patrons and portraits of award-winning orchids. The collection also features portraits, garden views and decorative flower paintings. We continue to acquire new works by contemporary artists that are of an exceptional standard.
