Our new edition is ripe for the picking! Today’s release is a tasteful (get it??) trio of berry prints, carefully selected by our curatorial team and gathered into this delectable set. Just add our hand-crafted custom frames to your order, and you're ready to go with the perfect triptych for almost any wall.
Plucked from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s expansive collection of pomological watercolors, these three images were created in 1886 as part of a larger research reference for pomologists (scientists growing fruit), fruit breeders, and growers. Scientific value aside, these berries are supremely summery, so it only seems right to release them now—when we still have a chance to fill our faces with the fresh-picked real thing.
The subjects of our fetching fruit trio are three different berry plants, illustrated by three different artists. There’s Rubus: Golden Queen—the gorgeous gilded raspberry with the regal name, by Ellan Isham Schutt. Then there’s Royal Charles Steadman’s Rubus: Black Pearl, the mysterious-sounding blackberry that resembles a renowned organic gem. And finally, Fragaria: Early Ozark, the vibrant strawberry hailing from the Ozark Mountains region of the United States. This final print in the trio was illustrated by Amanda Almira Newton, the same artist behind our juicy Prunus Persica: J.H. Hale edition.
Two’s company. Three’s a berry nice trio indeed.
With art for everyone,
