Make a Date with the Singapore Botanic Gardens!
To celebrate the beauty of orchids, the 2017 Singapore Botanic Gardens’ calendar features beautiful drawings of orchids, from our Library’s archives.
Most of these are historic paintings commissioned during the tenure of the Gardens’ first director, Henry Ridley, between 1888 and 1908. They were drawn by the famous de Alwis brothers, James and Charles, who were from an accomplished Sri Lankan family of botanical artists.
However, there are three exceptions: an original image by James de Alwis with flowers of hybrids added by Juraimi bin Samsuri; a second by British artist, Jean Kinloch Smith; and the last, a wonderful image of Singapore’s National Flower, Papilionanthe (Vanda) Miss Joaquim. This cover image was specially drawn by the Gardens’ current artist, Waiwai Hove.
