Fig. 14: Arthur Wesley Dow, American, 1857-1922, Flowers with Pods, about 1895, cyanotype, Worcester Art Museum, sarah C. garver Fund, 1997.74. Although the author does not know with certainty that Dow made this cyanotype using Herschel’s process, it was so pervasive at the time that it is likely. Ware made Ficus (Figure 15) using his own process, which offers finer image color and gradation than Herschel’s. see the details from Figures 14 and 15 on page 34 for a close-up comparison. Fig. 15: Mike Ware, British, born 1939, Ficus, 1998, cyanotype, loan courtesy of gallery 19/21.
