Sadler caricature

  • GB235 SAD
  • Item
  • 1872

Watercolour and ink drawing of 3 mycologists flying high in a mushroon / toadstool shaped hot air balloon entitled "Authorities high in Fungi, 1872" in John Sadler's handwriting - image could very well have been painted by John Sadler. The figure in glasses is likely Miles Berkeley; the figure with red beard could be John Sadler, but more likely to be Mordecai Cooke, the third figure is too indistinct to identify.

Sadler, John

  • 1964

Paul Aellen was a visitor to the RBGE Herbarium in the Winter of 1964, one of the earliest to the new building opened in June of that year. He worked very diligently in a quiet way on the top floor, researching Turkish Chenopodiaceae. To the amazement of the herbarium staff, just before he returned home to Basle he handed over this delightful and amusing account of his observations on the microcosm of life in theherbarium with photographs, magazine cuttings and beautifully witty pencil and ink sketches.

Aellen, Paul (1896-1973)
