Ancient Herbs in the J. Paul Getty Museum Gardens

1982 ; 98 Pages

"Martha Breen Bredemeyer, a San Francisco Bay area artist, was inspired to paint two dozen of The Getty Villa's garden’s herbs. Her watercolor gouaches combine vibrant color with the fragile delicacy of these short-lived plants while her pen-and-ink drawings share their wiry grace. Jeanne D’Andrea discusses twenty-one of the herbs in detail after presenting their place in myth, medicine, and home in the introduction."
