Pierre-Joseph Redouté

by Pierre Joseph Redouté | 10 June 2015
Category: Art & Design
Synopsis
Flower Power: The finest work of the "Raphael of flowers"   Redouté was forever in high demand. Official court draftsman to Queen Marie-Antoinette (who purportedly summoned him at midnight to paint a cactus), and later a favorite of Joséphine Bonaparte, the artist brought flowers to the highest of places, and offset the chaotic upheaval of the French Revolution with the delicacy of perfectly drawn petals. This reprint brings together 144 examples of Redouté's flower, branch, and fruit drawings. Originally published between 1827 and 1833, these precise yet tender illustrations are as delightful as they are informative, recording some of the most delicate plant specimens in the world and evoking the beauty of defunct Parisian greenhouses and gardens. Text in English, French, and German
