Notable Sale: The Garden Museum Acquire Lost Miniature from Philip Mould & Co.

Tue Oct 1, 2013

We are delighted to announce the acquisition of a recently sold miniature of John Tradescant the younger by the Garden Museum.

The miniature attributed to Thomas de Critz was discovered by Philip Mould Ltd and appears to be the only surviving miniature of Tradescant the Younger. John Tradescant the Younger was an eminent gardener and collector, an expertise no doubt encouraged by his father John Tradescant the Elder, a gardener and horticultural advisor to the nobility of his day.

The acquisition will be marked by a lecture given by guest speakers Jennifer Potter (Author of Strange Blooms the curious lives and adventures of the John Tradescants), and Karen Hearn (former Tate Curator and one of Britain's leading experts in 17th century art).
