Floral Masterpieces
The finest floral treasures of Pierre-Joseph Redouté

French flower painter Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759–1840) devoted himself exclusively to capturing the diversity of flowering plants in watercolor paintings which were then published as copper engravings, with careful botanical descriptions. The darling of wealthy Parisian patrons including Napoleon’s Josephine, he was dubbed “the Raphael of flowers,” and is regarded to this day as a master of botanical illustration.

This elegant catalogue brings together all color engravings from Redouté’s illustrations of Roses, Lilies and Choix des plus belles fleures et quelques branches des plus beaux fruits (Selection of the Most Beautiful Blooms and Branches with the Finest Fruits), offering a complete overview of Redouté’s marvelous ability to combine accuracy with beauty, as well as a glimpse into the magnificent greenhouses and gardens of a bygone Paris.
