Vintage Educational Canvas Wall Charts: Apple Tree by Jung, Koch, & Quentell.

These wall charts became a common fixture in science classes all over Europe for more than a century. The dramatic interpretation of natural cycles and the anatomy of animal and plants were masterfully represented on high-quality paintings over black backgrounds that were lithographically printed onto the roll-up canvases from the original carved stone master.

Originally produced as educational tools for schools and colleges by teacher Heinrich Jung, artist and biologist Gottlieb von Koch and college director, Doctor Friedrich Quentell.

In this particular Vintage Educational Canvas Wall Chart the overall picture and important details of the plant, as well as the stages of flowering and fruit development, are shown on the iconic dark background.

Vintage Educational Canvas Wall Charts are particularly elegant with sturdy wooden rods. They are incredibly sought-after by collectors and interior designers alike.

Dimensions: Canvas 60 x 80cm, rod length 70cm.
