The Exhibit

Unturned Leaves: Early Women in Botanical Illustration was displayed as a physical exhibit at Albert R. Mann Library starting in March 2019. The exhibit featured the images in this online version. Unturned Leaves likely represents the first time the works of M.F. Lewis have been on display.

Both the physical and online versions of Unturned Leaves were curated by Karl Rozyn, with additional text by Eveline Ferretti.
