The Paper Garden

: Mrs. Delany begins her life's work at 72

by Molly Peacock

This is the story of a woman in the 18th century who invented a kind of paper collage in later life and went on to create many impressive works of art. The author draws parallels to her own life in several areas. She also tries to make connections between some of the artwork and different periods of Mrs. Delany's life, but I think these comparisons fall rather flat. However, I did find the story interesting.
