Franklinia alatamaha/Franklin Tree

Gouache, Ink, Monotype on linen

8 x 8”

A member of the tea family, the Franklin tree – Franklinia alatamaha, was last seen growing in the wild in 1790. Named after Benjamin Franklin, this tree was founded by his friends John and Willima Bartram. Despite it’s extinction, it has long been cultivated and can be found in private collections and botanical gardens.
