The National Portrait Collection
When Alexander Roslin painted Carl von Linné in 1775, he placed a linnaea on the jacket lapel as a token. The portrait shows the king of flowers as old and timid, in real life he could be quite a peevish man. The purpose with Roslin’s painting was to create a representative picture for coming generations.
