Someday, My Prints Will Come

Botanical prints are synonymous with Palm Beach style, and antique prints mingle beautifully in the island’s Mediterranean-inspired homes. Collectors and designers, take note: Through the end of October, the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden’s art gallery has mounted an exhibit of rare antique engravings, lithographs and architectural renderings dating from the 16th through 19th centuries.

The works are displayed in frames of mahogany, burl wood, gold and silver leaf, tortoise shell, and marquetry, handmade by Giovanni Bello of Florence, Italy. Many include hand-painted mats.

Gallery talks will be held on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. and Sundays at noon.

The Ann Norton Sculpture Garden is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Admission is free for members; $10 for adults; $8 for seniors; and $7 for children and students.
