They commonly present the plants far larger than life, oranges huge as pumpkins, cyclamens with heavy corms floating lightly in mid-air, gentle geraniums grown into giant trees. The effect is obtained through sketching in classical or idyllic [including some very Dutch views] or mountainous little landscapes below." (Hunt 404). SEE ILLUSTRATIONS PLATE LXXXVII.
