Johann Wilhelm Weinmann Engravings of Grapes,

Set of Four,

Circa 1740

Johann Weinmann engravings of grapes, each engraved by Seuter (S to lower right of each).  The engravings are within a Sapele wood shadow box with rounded corners.

The Johann Weinmann engravings of grapes include the following types N. 1014, Vitis Corinthiaca & Vitis Vinifera;  N. 1015, Vitis vinifera, Vin blanc; N. 1016, Vitis Vinifera fructa; N. 1017 Vitis Selinoides

Dimensions: 18 inches high x 11 inches wide x 1 3/4 inches deep

Sapele is a large hardwood tree naturally that has a widespread growth range across Africa.  It is common for the trunk to exceed 6 feet in diameter and it has a very straight trunk with little to no branching below 80 feet.  This yields very straight-grained, wide, and long lumber.

Reference: Based on Weinmann's collection of plants, and financed by him, this is the first complete edition of what amounts to a comprehensive iconography of all the flowers, fruit, and vegetables in cultivation in early-18th century Europe. Georg Dionysius Ehret's pivotal contribution to the work is nowhere acknowledged as the artist parted with Weinmann after producing 500 designs. Weinmann, an apothecary from Regensburg, was the organiser of this huge undertaking, but the work was financed by Bartholomaeus Seuter, one of the engravers.
