Three Monstera Adansonii with Sashiko – Original Drawing on Cyanotype


This dramatic, light-filled Cyanotype is an original one of a kind work of art. The artist has drawn over her original cyanotype of three Monstera Adansonii leaves, using metallic inks in  gold, silver and pink.
It is created on beautiful Bockingford watercolour paper size 12 x 9 ins.
It is unframed.
The Cyanotype process was developed by Sir John Herschel in the 1840’s and shortly after used by the pioneering female early photographer Anna Atkins. A method of photography using sunlight without the use of a camera.

Monstera adansonii, also known as the Swiss cheese plant, is a unique flowering plant with beautiful heart-shaped leaves. Because of the oval-shaped holes or fenestrations dappled throughout the leaf, it’s sometimes called swiss cheese plant.
