Between 1886 and 1942, growers around the United States sent thousands of fruit and nut samples to the United States Department of Agriculture to be identified and painted. Lithographs of these watercolor paintings were created to illustrate USDA bulletins, yearbooks, and other publications distributed to growers and gardeners across America.  Also included are the wildflower and native plant paintings of Deborah Griscom Passmore and Mary Morris Vaux Walcott.
