Object Detail

Watercolour painting on rectangular sheet of brown paper, with a brown window mount, and backing. The painting is a botanical illustration of part of a tree with flowers and fruit. Two green stems are depicted with opposite leaves on petioles. The green leaf blades have pinnate venation, with triangular scale-like appendages at the base of leaves (stipules). At the bottom of the stem are small oval-shaped red berries on stalks. Interspersed along the stem are small clusters of flowers. Some of the flowers have white hair-like petals, whilst other clusters have small green-white flowers with tiny petals and long hair-like stamens. There are leaves depicted in a wash of purples and greens.

The painting is marked "NiNA JONES" and "CoprosMA grANdifoLiA."
