The Orchid Paintings of

reference material

McAllen International Orchid Society Journal.  http://www.miosjournal.org/journal/2006/11/Reichenbachia.html

Articles: Vol. 7 (11), pages 5-10. November 2006. Title: Reichenbachia. Author: R.J. Ferry

 

R.J. Ferry's article presents biographical insight into Henry G. Moon's life and work, with interesting details about the Reichenbachia.  Henry G. Moon's orchid paintings for the four Reichenbachia volumes are considered a monumental contribution to botanical art...some 192 plates altogether, nearly all of them the paintings of Mr. Moon. My personal homage to present clean and vivid reproductions of the lithographs has only begun.

Articles: Vol. 8(2), pages 3-6. February 2007. Title: Errata. Author: Greig Russell

Mr. Russel's corrections to the information presented by R.J. Ferry in his article entitled: Reichenbachia. Mr. Ferry had used as his reference a 1972 publication of  Merle A. Reinikka's A History of the Orchid . The Errata is to correct Reinikka's book and Ferry's article information.
