Artists and illustrators have painted and drawn the rose for centuries. From the tradition of beautiful flower painting to painstakingly detailed illustration, the rose has been the subject of fascinating studies that reflect mankind's interests and passions. Gene Waering will briefly explore the Western chapters of this story, from the 18th century to the present, through a presentation of selected drawings in his collection of historic rose art.
