Merian began her career as a flower painter, and this sheet is typical of the decorative studies of flowers that she continued to make throughout her life, in addition to her scientific works. Merian’s watercolours have been kept in albums for most of their history, and because they have rarely been exposed to light, the colours are still vivid.
