Plant Study - Marrow Showing General Growth
Birmingham School of Art encouraged the detailed study of nature into the twentieth century, awarding an annual prize for plant study. This pencil and watercolour study of a marrow demonstrates the exactness and precision of representation encouraged. Pupils were required to show all the stages in the life cycle of the chosen plant. In this work Ball shows the growth of the plant from flower bud to blossom as well as the marrow fruit.
