Dominique Chaix

Dominique Chaix

A portrait of Dominique Chaix with an herbarium, a famous botanist in French Alps, and some of the most iconic species he contributed to discover (Artemisia insipida, Verbascum chaixii, Plantago argentea, Galium saxosum, Lactuca quercina subsp. chaixii, Berardia subacaulis, Carduus aurosicus, Dianthus scaber).
Note that this portrait is a work of imagination, since there is no historical remains of a picture with his face.
Drawn for a project of a trail game for my township. Personal education in the process : botanical illustration takes long time!
Special thanks to Tela Botanica for documentation !
