Redoute Carnations, Oeillet variete. Carnation print.

by Redouté, Pierre Joseph

Lovely Redouté Carnation reproduction, printed from a hand-coloured stipple engraving by Langlois after a painting by Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) for his Choix des plus belles fleurs et des plus beaux fruits (Choice of the most beautiful flowers and fruit) originally published in Paris between 1827 and 1830.

Redouté painted exquisite watercolours on vellum for his employer, Napoleon's Empress Josephine, to record the plants and flowers in her extensive gardens at Malmaison outside Paris.

Our scan shows mainly the image. The study of the flower specimen is surrounded by the usual white border. They frame up beautifully, but as with all artwork, we recommend glass that gives U/V protection. Print size is 13 x 10 inches or 33 x 25cm.
