by Redouté, Pierre Joseph

Redouté Mimulus, 'Monkey Flower' botanical illustration.

Reproduction from a hand-coloured stipple engraving by Victor after a painting by Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) for his Choix des plus belles fleurs et des plus beaux fruits (Rredouté's Choice of the most beautiful flowers and fruit), which was originally published in Paris between 1827 and 1830.

During turbulent times in France, Redouté had as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie-Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor Marie-Louise. Redouté painted exquisite watercolours on vellum for Napoleon's Empress Josephine to record the plants and flowers from around the world, that were cutivated in her superb gardens at Malmaison outside Paris.

Approximate size of this print is 13 x 10 inches or 33 x 25cm. We recommend framing with U/V-blocking artglass for preservation of all artwork.
