Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

In the Stibbert park, a little known but amazing place in Florence, there is a Limonaia. Similar to the Orangeries of Paris where the fruit of the Orange tree was grown, in Florence the lemons fruit was propagated for the vast fleets of Italian sailing ships who needed vitamin C for long voyages.

They became more than greenhouses. Elaborate and beautiful structures were built to grow these fruits. Gardens grew up around them and social structures flowed around their function.

In this watercolor painting I've captured some of the garden and some of the building of the Limonaia showing how they interacted in an elegant way.
