Painting by Numbers

The ground‐breaking website "Painting by Numbers" contains many previously unpublished works (300 works are online) by the great Austrian botanical Artist Ferdinand Bauer (1760 - 1826) and demonstrates Bauer’s colour‐coding practice.
It is a collaboration between the State Library of New South Wales and NHM Vienna, the Bodleian Libraries Oxford, the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kiew, the Natural History Museum London and the Linnean Society in London.

Furthermore, the british botanist Prof. David Mabberley published the book  "Painting by numbers: the Life and Art of Ferdinand Bauer".
