Margaret Senior, plant disease paintings, 1964

These paintings were commissioned by the Division of Science Services of NSW Agriculture to illustrate plant diseases and other aspects of Biology. The original commission for 24 paintings was extended and the collection now holds 80 superb examples of her work. Many of her illustrations are still used by NSW Agriculture. Some of these diseases will be all too familiar to the home gardener.
Margaret Senior was a versatile illustrator of children's books and natural history.
