Summary Mary Granville Pendarves Delany (1700-1788) was the witty, beautiful and talented daughter of a minor branch of a powerful family. At the age of 72, she created a new art form, mixed-media collage. Over the next decade, she created an astonishing 985 botanically-correct, breathtaking cut-paper flowers, now housed in the British Museum and referred to as the Botanica Delanica
