‘The Tradescants’ Orchard’ is a seventeenth-century volume of sixty-six watercolours depicting fruit varieties that John Tradescant and his son might have grown in their market garden at Lambeth. The French Peare makes its delightful appearance as part of this tome and it is this botanical drawing that is the inspiration for this project.
