Artist and traveller, Adela Breton (1849-1923) worked at archaeological sites in Mexico making full-size colour copies of the wall paintings in temples and buildings in Chichén Itzá, Teotihuacan and Acancéh.
Her copies are now the only full record of what was there in the 1900s and allow today's academics to interpret the images and the history they show.
For the first time since the 1940s, the large watercolours will be on display as a celebration of Adela Breton, her art and the art of ancient Mexico.
Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution (BRLSI) are also hosting an exhibition of Adela Breton's work. The Remarkable Miss Breton exhibition runs until 1 October 2016.
