AbstractGrapevine (Vitis vinifera L.): Old Varieties Are Reflected in Works of Art. The northwest of the Iberian Peninsula is home to a number of ancient grapevine varieties now in danger of extinction, regarding which the literature contains only a few references, dating from the 19th century. In this region, baroque religious art, which is commonly ornamented with grapevine motifs, achieved great importance. This work reports the ampelographic comparison of the leaves of 19 old grapevine varieties from this region with those represented on 42 baroque altarpieces. Many of the latter were found to be ampelographically correct representations of grapevine leaves; in some cases they showed such similarity to these old varieties that their cultivation at the time when the corresponding sculptures were made can be confirmed. A larger study may therefore help determine when other varieties were cultivated in the past. © 2009 The New York Botanical Garden.
