Suzanne Davit, an illustrator at the Botanical Institute

Duration: from May 3rd to December 31st, 2007.

A woman, an artist and full of scientific curiosity. These are the three elements that make Suzanne Davit (1897-1973) a survivor of an era—the early and mid 20th century—in which art and science formed part of an eminently male-dominated world; in which Catalan botany tried to grow using its promoters’ willpower as an only energy source.

The Botanical Institute of Barcelona, where the author worked from the 1940s and which still conserves 387 plates that she produced, wanted to make sure she would be remembered, this exhibition being the most evident proof.
