About the Piece
This large-scale feature piece is a reproduction of the original botanical illustration from the ‘’Album Vilmorin; Les Plantes potagères’’ (The Vegetable Garden, 1850–1895), a seed catalogue from the French company Vilmorin-Andrieux & Cie. The dark green leaves of the chard against the dark red, yellow and white of the plant's stem are featured prominently in the collection of root and bulb ground plants depicted. This piece has been perfectly preserved with over 100 years of wear-and-tear captured to add to its character. The artwork has been printed on a fade-resistant, heavy-duty synthetic canvas, with its brilliant colours and accurate detail carefully restored. Hand-mounted with aged timber batons and 100% cotton rope. Each artwork comes rolled and ready to hang, individually wrapped in a protective cotton sock and sturdy cardboard box - perfect for shipping and storing.
