Victorian Rebel: Marianne North 1x46

Marianne North is one of the few female Victorian explorers to travel the world and is perhaps one of the greatest female explorers of all time. Her motivation to explore was fired by a passion for painting plants, and her documentation of rare species led to her forming a close relationship with Charles Darwin, discovering four plants that were named after her, meeting the emperor of Brazil, and travelling to undiscovered territory in Borneo – ultimately leaving behind an extraordinary artistic legacy of over a thousand paintings. Victorian Explorer: The Adventures of Marianne North follows the intrepid adventurer’s footsteps and relives her jaw-dropping experiences.
