Nature’s Bounty


Showcasing paintings from the Shirley Sherwood Collection and the Kew Collection, Nature’s Bounty features fruit and plants from around the world.
The development of fruit is shown in many of these paintings, some of which are the culmination of months of observation, waiting for a pear or apple to ripen so that every stage can be shown.


Along with contemporary works from the Shirley Sherwood Collection, the exhibition also includes items from Kew’s Library, Art and Archives collections.
Works from the 18th and 19th centuries are featured, including a selection of plates of fruit from the 1863 rst edition of Berthe Hoola van Nooten’s Fleurs, Fruits et Feuillages Chosis de la ore et de la pomone de l’Ile de Java. Fruit models from Kew’s Economic Botany Collection add a fascinating addition to the exhibition.
