Anna Hackel (1864 - c 1920) 

selected work

A compendium of imagined flora and fauna, The Secret Lives of Plants features the floral visions of Anna Hacke.

Born into a farming community and unschooled in art, Anna Hackel was in her 50s when she started to illustrate her mystical floral visions. The drawings, intended for healing purposes, were distributed throughout Bohemia and across Europe and led to considerable acclaim within spiritualist circles.
