Sarah Ann Featon, a distinguished botanical artist of the 19th century, leads us on a historical journey through her life and works. Born around 1848 in London to a well-off family, Sarah’s path took her across the seas to New Zealand, where she married Edward Featon in 1870. In Gisborne, they embarked on a creative endeavor to challenge misconceptions about New Zealand’s flora. Their collaborative work, “The Art Album of New Zealand Flora,” was a pioneering full-color art book in New Zealand, celebrating the native flowering plants and showcasing Sarah’s exquisite watercolors alongside Edward’s informative texts. Notably, the New Zealand Government honored this work by presenting a copy to Queen Victoria in 1897. Despite her artistic success, Sarah faced financial challenges later in life, compelling her to sell her original artwork, which now resides in the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.
