Botanical Prints of Henry Evans
The McCune Collection is a rare book and art collection and has begun to place its collection of Henry Evans (1918-1990) online. Henry Evans began making his botanical prints in 1958 and during his career he drew more than 1400 subjects. He has had more that 250 one-man shows and his works are in the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library, the Albertina in Vienna, the Clark Library at UCLA, the Gleeson Library, and the Bancroft Library, just to mention a few.
The McCune Collections has put many of these works online - so far it has started with his 1950 portfolio "First Duet" and has progressed to 1966 "Volume 17" of botanical lithographs. This is a continuing process and addition Henry Evans portfolios will be added in the coming months.
