Seeds of Knowledge Set of 3 Magnets

2 x 3 inches each
Set of 3 magnets

Floral manuscript illustrations like these beautiful magnets are sure to spruce up your refrigerator!

This set of three magnets features images 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 magnet set 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.
