Neomarica caerulea painting

Joseph Paxton’s greatest claim to fame is probably the construction of the Crystal Palace for the Great Exhibtion held in London in 1850, but his extraordinary achievements also included a substantial body of published work, and from 1834 to 1849 oversaw the publication of 16 volumes of Paxton’s Magazine of Botany.Illustration - Neomarica caerulea from Paxton’s Magazine of Botany.
