Thanks Chris,

                        I had seen something about this collection before but this is a lovely article. 

 

Glad the mangosteen is a favourite. They are in season here now. Do you get them in the US? Sometimes in winter you can get them here, imported from Thailand.

 

I love the flavour, like a cross between mandarin and a lychee. I also love the little wooden flower-like structure on the bottom. I did an etching of them years ago. https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__geoffthompson.net_art_etchings_mangosteens.html&d=DwIFaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=AGYZ7-AeerjxzYnIwL-lBLFI3SPYN3BDmku4qGQB4Tg&m=0kirvZIfqECGPX1RQlz-0Sy26B_6NCyPIy6z06XZB-o&s=kq-gUN85F_ON3Azgo-sbHdievgNZw8GkNhC6N2zklU4&e= 

 

When I worked in the old Queensland Museum building our fabulous library spilled down the corridor. There were a couple of wonderful books, “The Cherries of New York” and “The Pears of New York”. I thought they were paintings but when I searched they look like hand-coloured photographs. I will have to look at work tomorrow.

I saw this article about watercolor paintings made for the USDA Division of Pomology between 1886 and 1942--gorgeous, luscious images--enjoy!
