Book Description:
William Hooker was the finest English painter of fruit and Pomona Londinensis is his masterwork. This suite of 49 hand colored aquatint engravings includes the choicest fruits from the markets, private gardens, and nurseries of Regency London. As draftsman to the Horticultural Society, Hooker devoted some attention to flowers, but fruit on the bough was his specialty. Seldom has the weight of suspended fruit, the spring of cherry stems, or the background of foliage been so unerringly conveyed. Hooker even compounded a special pigment for the leaves, still sold to artists as 'Hooker s Green.' This Octavo Edition, reproduced from a rare large paper copy, features beautiful book images, notes on the fruit varieties depicted, an essay on fruit illustration, and a searchable transcription. Commentary by Ian Jackson.
