Have you ever seen more delicious imagery? The USDA Pomological Watercolor Collection represents a remarkable fusion of art, science, and governmental endeavors.

Housed within the Rare and Special Collections of the National Agricultural Library, this historic botanical archive meticulously chronicles the introduction of new fruit and nut varieties by USDA plant explorers from the late 19th to early 20th centuries. Spanning 1886 to 1942, with a concentration of works produced between 1894 and 1916, the collection showcases the talents of numerous commissioned artists. Their watercolor compositions graced lithographic reproductions in USDA publications and served as vital scientific records. Despite some pieces lacking signatures, historical records attribute the contributions of 21 artists—9 of them women—to this invaluable resource. The known artists within this set are Mary Daisy Arnold, Elsie E. Lower, James Marion Shull, Royal Charles Steadman, Amanda Almira Newton, and Deborah Griscom Passmore.

This product was custom designed and created at our Seattle location, elegantly presented within a deluxe keepsake box.
