Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Wild orchid prints for sale

23 January 2017

If you love wild orchids and also want to support the Hunt Institute, you may now purchase from a selection of 19th-century engravings and lithographs that were produced for a variety of European horticultural publications. In 2016 the Institute's Art Department received a major collection of orchid prints from the widow of an avid collector. The donor agreed that any duplicate prints could be sold to benefit the Hunt Institute. The next opportunity you have to visit the Institute, ask to see the binder of prints (each priced at $40) at our front desk. Add a piece of wild beauty and history to your walls while supporting the Art Department's Anne Ophelia Todd Dowden Art Acquisition Fund.
