Scope and content

The file consists of botanical illustrations of Western thimbleberry (Rubis parviflorus) in pencil, pen, and watercolour.

The painting was also used for the poster and invitations to the exhibition program. Includes condition report, loan agreements, and sales history.

The file also includes four black and white prints of botanical illustrations used in Nancy J. Turner and Adam F. Szczawinski's "Edible Wild Fruits and Nuts of Canada" (Ottawa: National Museum of Natural Sciences, National Museums of Canada, 1979).
