Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0935112545, Hardcover)

Artists have long tried to capture the fleeting beauty of the natural world, but none has succeeded as Raymond Booth has. Over more than forty years, he has built an immense body of rarely-seen work. His lush oil paintings transport the viewer into idyllic scenes in which each leaf and petal, branch and feather comes alive in vivid realism.

Booth's luminous work exhibits both scientific precision and transcendent artistic vision. Also a renowned botanist, he painstakingly observes each plant through one or more growing cycles before putting brush to canvas.

Here is the first comprehensive collection of Booth's singular oeuvre -- exquisitely reproduced in an oversized format with extraordinary fidelity to the original works of art. An introduction and commentary by Peyton Skipwith, director of The Fine Art Society of London, accompanies the color plates and provides gardening anecdotes and a wealth of technical information, including habitat or bloom period.

This long-overdue retrospective volume, celebrating the work of a master painter, will be treasured by all those who love art and nature.
