Mr Veitch's Calathea. Calathea Veitchiana

Vintage botanical art by Shirley Hibberd showing Mr Veitch's Calathea (Calathea veitchiana) endemic to Ecuador. This plant was discovered by the Victorian plant collector, Richard Pearce in 1862, and named in honour of his employers, James Veitch and Sons.

Beautiful exotic leaves drawn with precision and portrayed in vibrant colour.
This is a fine art print inspired by a lithograph by Hibberd made in the mid 19th century.
