About Pointillism:

The technique relies on the ability of the eye and mind of the viewer to blend the color spots into a fuller range of tones. The practice of Pointillism is in sharp contrast to the traditional methods of blending pigments on a palette. 

"The Botanical Garden, founded in 1814, belongs to the Natural History Museum of the University of Oslo. Through research, education and plant conservation, the garden seeks to increase public awareness of the importance of plant diversity. The plant collections contain approx. 5 500 species"The Botanical Garden of Oslo
