Superb yellow Fritillaria, Redouté botanical illustration.

Reproduction printed from a hand-coloured stipple engraving by Bessin after a painting by Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) for his Choix des plus belles fleurs et des plus beaux fruits (Redouté's Choice of the most beautiful flowers and fruit) 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 from around the world, that were cultivated in her lavish gardens at Malmaison.

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.
