Fanny Eva Richardson was a Wellington artist who was born in 1872. Her main medium was watercolours, and she was a regular exhibitor at the Academy of Fine Arts. She also created work for the Forest and Bird magazine.
Clianthus puniceus is endemic to New Zealand and is known as Kākābeak/ngutukākā. Its striking flowers hang in clusters of 15-20 blooms. Their shape reflects the curve of a Kaka’s beak. Although most Kākābeak plants have red flowers, the white variety is shown in Richardson’s watercolour. The original size of this illustration is 270mm x 372mm.
