Chicory with a Dragonfly Notecard

5 x 7 inch
Single notecard envelope included

A lovely image for the perfect note or a frameable keepsake. This notecard features an image from one of three small leaves painted by an anonymous artist who worked for Queen Claude of France (reigned 1514-24). The Naturalistic portrayal of flowers, often with insects, was popular in the border decorations of luxury devotional manuscripts in early sixteenth century France. Though highly detailed, this image was likely a sample illustration to demonstrate the artist’s skills, rather than leaves from a fully realized manuscript.

This notecard is a product made to complement the exhibition Seeds of Knowledge: Early Modern Illustrated Herbals on view at the Morgan Library & Museum October 6, 2023 through January 14, 2024.
