Singapore Botanic Gardens 2022 Calender
As 2021 starts to wind down, we are preparing to welcome a new year with the beautiful Singapore Botanic Gardens 2022 calendar.
The botanical watercolours featured in this calendar were painted between 1894 and 1949 by artists James and Charles de Alwis, Jean Kinloch Smith and Juraimi bin Samsuri. These artworks are part of the Gardens’ archives which include more than 2,000 botanical paintings, as well as hundreds of sketches, line drawings and photographs.
Since March 2021, a selection of the best and most representative artworks in the Gardens’ collections has been on display in the newly opened Botanical Art Gallery .
