Ferdinand Bauer was the artist behind one of the world's great botanical books, the Flora Graeca (1806-40). Bauer made hundreds of pencil sketches of plants and animals when he explored the eastern Mediterranean in 1786-87. Modern scientific analyses reveal the techniques Bauer used to transform his sketches into more than 1,200 of the finest natural history illustrations ever made.
