This illustration of a medicinal plant can be seen in a manuscript in the Tapestry Room. While Isabella did travel to the Middle East, and it’s possible that this is why the work appealed to her, the manuscript was purchased from a New York dealer with the help of Isabella’s friends Bernard Berenson and Denman Waldo Ross. Image: Abdallah ibn al-Fadl, Verbena Recta and Verbena Supina, 1224, ink and watercolor on paper.
