Redouté to Warhol: Bunny Mellon’s Botanical Art

With her farm at Upperville, VA, Rachel Lambert “Bunny” Mellon created an environment where gardens and house flowed easily from one to the other. Her botanical art collection ranged from rare watercolors by renowned botanical artists such as Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues and Pierre-Joseph Redouté to 20th-century paintings by Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol. This collection was the subject of an exhibition this fall/winter at the New York Botanical Garden’s LuEsther T. Mertz Library Art Gallery. Joanna Groarke will be speaking on the exhibition and Mrs. Mellon’s love of gardens.
