Palm Trees

IN THE SEARCH FOR FINE ART - FOUND A TREASURE TROVE

Seven North Art's search for fine and beautiful art has discovered in an old estate a treasure trove of incredible botanical palm prints. 

Seven North Art has represented and sold these art pieces many years ago but we were almost out and here in this old house under beds and in the storage garage we found more ..Now we have hundreds so we are going to sell the 1st 40 sets at extremely low prices.... six  beautiful magnificently done Botanical Palm Tree Drawings by artist Diane Peebles. Seven North Art rescued them from an old house in the estate of a  very eccentric publisher and collector and the smaller size was in one of his storage units. It was quite an exciting adventure digging them out from under all kinds of maps and some other interesting old art pieces. They were printed 28 years ago and luckily the publisher knew what he was doing.  All of the six Botanical palm tree prints were printed on  Acid -free vellum paper  80 lb cover stock  and most were still in the original packaging wrapped and are in mint condition. Seven North Art was able to inventory about 350 of each totaling about 3,600 including the large and small Palm Tree prints.

There are approximately 2,600 species of palm trees on the planet, almost all of them live in tropical and subtropical regions. Palms are one of the most widely planted trees in the world and have always been highly important to humans in many ways. In landscaping their diversity is unmatched, gardens, parks, beaches and vacations locations around the globe; even in non-tropical areas certain palms have become the standard. A perfect example of this in Los Angeles California where only a single species is native the - Wasingtonia filifera known as the California Fan Palm.

In the early 1930's when L.A. started building it's most famous streets with an eye on looking good for the upcoming 1932 Olympic Games, the city planted 150 miles of streets with 40,000 Palm Trees, which at that time sold only $3.60 each.
