From the 1850s, sisters Helena and Harriet Scott collected, studied and drew the butterflies and botany of New South Wales in precise detail. Together they produced an archive of more than 600 intricate and beautiful paintings and drawings. As part of the AM’s 190th anniversary, and to celebrate the launch of a new range of merchandise inspired by the drawings, see the Scott Sisters' extraordinary work and watch their art come to life through animated projections.
