Description
This is one of twenty-five engravings that the Wagener hopes will appear in a book. He was first inspired to try a botanical subject while hiking in Joshua Tree National Park and a short time later, while visiting the Huntington Library and Garden, he was introduced to other plants that he found visually interesting yet challenging to him as an artist. Wagener created a number of works based upon the various cacti in the Huntington Gardens. He first titled them Huntington I, Huntington II, etc., but has since added their scientific names.
