An unframed botanical work by Fanny Bertha Good - oil on canvas. Depicts a specimen of Whau. Predominant colours - leaves are various greens, with the lower right leaf in autumnal colours of yellow, orange, brown and red. Flowers have white petals with yellow pollen. Signed lower left corner and centre of bottom edge in black paint "F.B Good". Handwritten text in black ink on rear reads as follows "Whau. / Oeo December, 1900 / F.B. Good." To the left of this are two words handwritten in black ink which are indecipherable. Presumably they are the latin title for this plant. Small square of paper with "474" printed in black adhered lower right corner on rear via sellotape. Handwritten in black marker pen at the top of the rear reads "Picture No. / 1498" and to the right of this "Cat No. / A65.732". Entire surface of image has a white residue covering.
