About The Name

Solander Gallery takes its name from Daniel Solander (1733-1782) who was a Swedish botanist from the British Museum and accompanied Joseph Banks on Captain James Cooks first voyage to the South Pacific (1768). His name has become synonymous with a clam shell style collection box he designed that is still in use by Museums and Art Galleries around the world for the storage of precious collections and artworks.
