Description

Throughout history, especially from the 18th century to the beginning of World War II, artists have produced a remarkable wealth of graphic representations of fruit. This volume includes paintings by American artists, including the Peale family, Grant Wood, and Thomas Hart Benton, engravings and lithographs by major printmaking companies like Currier and Ives, botanical illustrations, and excerpts from vintage nursery catalogs. Find hundreds of illustrations, chosen to arouse physical and aesthetic appetites. These include still lifes, photographs, and amusing antique postcards, as well as expert botanical and historical information. Fruit you know and some you may not are illustrated here in unique works of art or artifacts. They include standards like apples, cherries, and grapes, tropicals such as bananas, mangoes and avocados, biblical fruits, including pomegranates, dates, and olives, and rare delicacies like medlars, persimmons, prickly cactus pears, and pawpaws. Fruit has never looked this good.
