Abstract

Botanical drawings of Angelina Damiani Lanza (1879 - 1936). The drawings of Sicilian plants made by Ange- lina Damiani are reported and commented. After a brief presentation of the author’s personality, the technique used in the drawings is examined, together with the relevant value from the artistic and botanical point of view. This material, mainly consisting of pencil drawings gathered in an album recently donated to the Director of the Palermo Botanical Garden, sin- ce 2006 is exhibited in the small historical museum set up in one of the halls of the monumental Gymnasium of the same Botanical Garden. Most of the drawings done by Angelina Damiani for the studies of her husband, the Sicilian botanist Domenico Lanza, mainly concern various species and varieties of Calendula.This hard genus of the Asteraceae family was indeed covered by the special interest of Domenico Lanza, on which he carried out a valuable botanical monographic work.
