In your latest copy of Rockwatch magazine (Issue 74 pages 8/9) you’ll see the wonderful work of Adele Breton (1849-1923). She was an unusual Victorian gentlewoman who travelled around Mexico studying the country when most of the women of her day were tied to the home. Anthropology and the ‘new’ science of geology captured her interest and she spent her time travelling, exploring cultures and landscapes, often camping or staying in small villages, accompanied only by her Indian guide and companion. Her paintings, sketchbooks and photographs albums are stunning illustrations of the landscape and geology she saw and these are on display in the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery until 14th May.
