Abraham Munting
Naauwkeurige Beschryving der Aardgewassen
Amsterdam (1696)

Original 325+-year-old hand-coloured engraving on beautiful 17th century chain-laid paper

Sheet size: approx. 11 x 17.25 inches.

Abraham Munting began his career as a physician, later becoming a professor of botany at Groningen, directing the Hortus Botanicus Groninganus from 1658-83. He adopted a fascinating style for his illustrations: These amazing plates typically feature plants hovering in front of a pastoral or classic landscape and accompanied by architectural ornaments. Some are shown in unusual pots. The Latin names of the species are often presented on ribbon-like scrolls or tablets. Among the prints are subtropical plants imported for cultivation to the Netherlands.
