    (channeling Mary Delany directly...!) _ "Pancratium Maritinum" paper collage by Mary Delany __ From John Lechner of the Untended Garden blog, "Mary Delany was one amazing woman. She lived in England during the 1700s, and in the course of her 88 years she was a gardener, painter, naturalist, art collector, and friend to the likes of Jonathan Swift and George Frederick Handel. At the age of 72 she took up a new art form – paper collage. The image above is made entirely of cut paper."

    Mary Delany, Pancratium Maritinum, 1778 - Collage of colored papers with watercolor - British Museum - For much of her long life, Mary Delany (1700-1788) was in many ways a typical 18th century society woman of accomplishments. She was an excellent “amateur” artist and also mastered the arts of japanning, silhouettes and embroidery.
