Set of 12 Rare French Watercolor Studies of Espaliers

Set of 12 French watercolor studies from late 19th-early 20th century depicting different forms of espalier. Espalier is the practice of controlling woody plant growth for the production of fruit, by pruning and tying branches to a frame. It's an ancient horticultural practice, created by the Romans and developed into an art from by the Europeans in the Middle Ages.

This rare set of 12 charming espalier consists of unique shapes, such as the for of a lyre, a table and chairs, and a bicycle! The largest painting measures 16" x 23", the smallest measures 13.5" x 9" while most of the pieces average 11" x 14". Several are signed Léo Fos, and are in excellent condition under glass in their original green frames.
