The Pomological Watercolor Collection, curated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is a remarkable archive featuring approximately 7,500 botanical watercolors produced between 1886 and 1942. This significant collection serves as a historical record of various fruit species cultivated across the United States, showcasing the artistic prowess of around sixty artists, with many being women. Each illustration in the Pomological Watercolor Collection was meticulously created as a scientific record for fruit identification and classification, mirroring the progress in American agriculture of that era. The collection not only depicts a wide array of fruits but also highlights the development of botanical illustration techniques, making it an essential resource for both scientific and historical studies.
