The Sketchbook

New Zealand Plants

This collection in the Alexander Turnbull Library is called ‘New Zealand Plants’ and contains 8 pencil sketches by Emily Cumming Harris, four of the sketches forming a basis for eventual paintings in New Zealand Flowers, Berries, and Ferns. The collection was purchased from Mr Michael Beca in 1999 and the dates on the sketches indicate that this collection would have been made between 1890 and 1892.
