The Abraham Cowley
Text and Image Archive

Flora and Pomona. But where is Pomona? With its mingled bouquet of plant-metamorphs, this first vignette in the 1707 illustrated Plantarum looks more like a simplified version of The Empire of Flora by Nicholas Poussin (painted 1631), illustrating Ovid's Fasti 4.211-74. From The Works of Abraham Cowley, 10th ed. (London, 1707). Reproduced with permission from the Special Collections of the University of Virginia.
