In Aarhus’ Botanic Garden Greenhouses you can experience the exhibition Botanical Details. The exhibition contains botanical illustrations by the Danish artist Bent Johansen (1909-2004).
The illustrations have been created as teaching resources for the botanical education programme at Aarhus University. Besides being beautiful, the drawings emphasize the parts of the plants that are pivotal to the plants’ systematic structure, e.g. a single flower, a seed or a petal.
At the exhibition, you can see the beautiful botanical drawings and their impressive level of detail. Afterwards, you can explore the greenhouses and search for the actual plants, perhaps with inspiration from the exhibition.
The greenhouses offer free admission for everyone.
