Trailblazing artist Mary Delany was born #otd in 1700. She is best known for her exquisite flower collages, crafted from tiny pieces of paper, which are both beautiful and botanically accurate. Delany didn’t start making her ‘mosaicks’ until she was 72, but made nearly 1,000 works in just over a decade. (via @britishmuseum)
