Georg Dionysius Ehret,  (1708 -1770) Botanical illustrations


Georg Dionysius Ehret was a botanist and entomologist known for his botanical illustrations. A German-born artist he spent his early career travelling and working across Europe prior to working closely with Carl Linnaeus. However, in 1736, he moved to England and became much sought after by leading botanists and collectors to record their rare plants.
