Great Scott! the true beauty of nature

From the Maitland Mercury report:
They have been described as the Bronte sisters of the botanical world, exuding wit, intelligence and scientific expertise in the male-dominated world of the 19th century.
In a coup for the Maitland Regional Art Gallery, the beautiful and intricate works of  Harriet (Hattie) and Helena (Nellie) Scott are now on show in the exquisite exhibition titled Beauty from Nature: the art of the Scott sisters.
