The Melon. A Perfect Recreation™ of the original watercolor and gouache on paper by Jacques LeMoyne de Morgues, c. 1570. 5 ¾” x 7 ¼”.

The LeMoyne Melon is one of eighty original watercolors that comprise what may be the most important and rare florilegium (a compendium of flower paintings by a single artist) of the 16th century. More than four hundred years after its execution, this painting retains the color and luminosity of a contemporary work. The extraordinary detail of the fruit – and the exposed and vibrant orange flesh and seeds – creates an almost three-dimensional impression. Our Perfect Recreation™ captures all of these qualities as well as the feeling of the now antique paper originally prepared as vellum.

"Gorgeous botanical prints in exquisite detail".
