Details


This series of 20 highly intricate, large scale graphite drawings by Mark Frith depicts Britain’s most characterful veteran oaks, many of which are more than 1,000 years old.

Each breath-taking portrait shows the tree in winter, highlighting the architectural beauty of its trunk, bark and branches – the results of up to a millennium of growth.

Ten of the drawings were gifted to Kew, and ten are on loan from the Heart of England Forest.
