2018 Vegetables Wall Calendar
Vilmorin-Andrieux & Cie, a Paris seed company founded in 1743 by Claude Geoffroy, the daughter of a seed merchant, and Pierre d’Andrieux, a botanist to King Louis XV, produced its first catalog in 1766. By the mid-nineteenth century, the family-owned company had established a reputation for expertise in the groundbreaking science of seed breeding. From 1850 to 1895, the heirs of the founders commissioned fifteen artists to create a series of illustrations to use as advertisements for their fruits and vegetables. The collection of 46 lithographs was published as Album Vilmorin: Les Plantes potagères (The Vegetable Garden). The twelve illustrations reproduced here are in the collection of the British Library.
