“Of Green Leaf, Bird, and Flower”: Artists’ Books and the Natural World
This exhibition examines the intersections of artistic and scientific interest in the natural world from the sixteenth century to the present. Depictions of Britain’s countryside and its native plant and animal life will be explored through more than three hundred objects drawn primarily from the Center’s collections, ranging from centuries-old manuscripts to contemporary artists’ books. “Of Green Leaf, Bird, and Flower” highlights the scientific pursuits in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries that resulted in the collecting and cataloging of the natural world. Also investigated will be the aesthetically oriented activities of self-taught naturalists during the Victorian era, particularly those of women who collected and drew specimens of butterflies, ferns, grasses, feathers, seaweed, and shells, and assembled them into albums and commonplace books. On view will be examples of twentieth- and twenty-first-century artists’ books, including those of Eileen Hogan, Mandy Bonnell, Tracey Bush, John Dilnot, Sarah Morpeth, and Helen Douglas, that broaden the vision of the natural world to incorporate its interaction with consumer culture and with modern technologies. Works by these contemporary artists reveal a shared inspiration to record, interpret, and celebrate nature as in the work of their predecessors. The exhibition features traditional bound books, drawings, and prints, as well as a range of more experimental media incorporating cut paper, wood, stone, natural specimens, sound, video, and interactive multimedia. A number of key historic works will be on loan from the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. Examples of early microscopes used by natural historians will also be displayed, on loan from the Lentz Collection at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History. “Of Green Leaf, Bird, and Flower”: Artists’ Books and the Natural World is being organized by the Center and curated by Elisabeth Fairman, Senior Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts. The accompanying book, published in association with Yale University Press, is being designed to evoke an early naturalist’s field guide.

Help is better than sympathy Frank Brangwyn and the First World War
At the start of the First World War, more than a million Belgian refugees fled the advancing armies, seeking sanctuary abroad. Around 250,000 made it to England – one of the largest groups of refugees in British history - and found a sympathetic welcome. Local relief committees formed all over the country, raising funds to sustain them during their time in exile. The exhibition takes its title from a poster designed by Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) for the Belgian & Allies Aid League. “Will you help these sufferers from the war to start a new home”, it asks. “Help is better than sympathy.” Bruges-born Brangwyn, already a well-known and successful artist before 1914, became a prolific poster-maker during the war and his designs became synonymous with First World War propaganda. Many present the horrors of the war, while others aim to recruit soldiers and vilify the enemy. One propaganda poster in particular was so violent that the German Kaiser allegedly put a price on Brangwyn’s head. Help is better than sympathy presents some of Brangwyn’s best known posters, including ‘The Retreat from Antwerp’, alongside lesser known work. Shown together they offer an opportunity to examine Brangwyn’s attitude to the First World War, and the Belgian refugees in particular, using the Gallery’s rich collection. Find out more about Frank Brangwyn by exploring the Frank Brangwyn theme or by browsing the collection online. Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am - 5pm; free

Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392-1910
Treasures of Korea presents more than 150 works from the time of the world's longest-ruling Confucian dynasty, lasting more than 500 years. On display are many Korean national treasures that have never before been shown in the United States. This comprehensive survey is organized around five key themes that together illuminate a period that continues to influence modern manners, norms and social attitudes: the role of the king and his royal court and their taste for simplicity, expressed in porcelain objects; the strict hierarchies that defined class and gender; the production of metal and ceramic ritual implements used in ancestral worship; various religions practiced during this time, and the late influence of western civilizations.

John Ruskin | Artist and Observer
John Ruskin (1819-1900) is renowned as the greatest British art critic of the nineteenth century and the champion of Turner, but his role as an artist remains relatively little known. He was however an outstanding draughtsman and watercolour painter, who especially took inspiration from the natural world and architectural subjects. This exhibition will illustrate, with the finest examples, the range and quality of his drawn and painted work. Gothic palaces in Venice, wild and spectacular Scottish and Alpine landscapes, and minutely defined and brilliantly coloured birds and plants will all be highlights of the show. The loans will chiefly come from the key UK and US collections (both public and private), and the exhibition is a prestigious collaboration with the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. It is especially fitting that John Ruskin: Artist and Observer should be showcased in Edinburgh, as Ruskin came from a Scottish family, visited Scotland many times, and was a passionate advocate for the beauty of its landscapes and literary heritage. Key episodes in his public and private life were enacted here. A major, scholarly catalogue complementing the exhibition is to be published by the National Gallery of Canada.
John Ruskin | Artist and Observer
John Ruskin (1819—1900) is remembered as Victorian Britain’s leading art critic and as the champion of JMW Turner. But he was also an outstanding artist in his own right. His exquisitely detailed drawings and watercolours were the result of an intense and passionate artistic impulse. This landmark exhibition, for the first time, provides a comprehensive overview of Ruskin’s extraordinary artistic output. The exhibition has been organised by the National Galleries of Scotland and the National Gallery of Canada.
