The Twelve Months of Fruits: September

6 September 2022

We take a moment from our garden labors to enjoy these dwindling days of summer. We turn to The Twelve Months of Fruits (1732) where September offers varieties of apples, grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears and plums.

For biographical information about artist Pieter Casteels (1684–1749) and publisher Robert Furber (ca.1674–ca.1756), see our Flora Portrayed exhibition catalogue.
