@N27@ NOTEEmily Cheeseman's watercolours Of the famous botanist T.F. Cheeseman'ssis ters, Clara wrote magazinearticles and a novel, and Emily (Emma)learned t axidermy and preparedbird specimens for him at home. TheAuckland Museum h as a collection oftwenty-three of Emily Cheeseman'sbotanical watercolou rs and drawings.Thirteen are of orchids - spare,disciplined, straightlace d, stylised anddistinctive, but botanicallyaccurate and very beautiful wo rks. Insteadof fleshing out the plants(as Fanny Osborne did) she made elo ngatedwillowy images, delicate andunderstated. Cheeseman's famous pap er on the fertilisation ofPterostylis containedJohn Buchanan's lithogra ph of P. alobulalabelled P. trullifolia, for P.alobula was separated on ly later. Itis wrongly attributed to herbrother, for in fact it was copi ed fromEmily Cheeseman's painting. The P. puberula watercolour is typic al ofher style and is reproducedhere with permission from the Auckland Museum.
