By Werner Dressendorfer and H. Walter Lack

Pierre-Joseph Redout (1759-1840) was born in Saint- Hubert, now part of Belgium. Official court draftsman to Queen Marie-Antoinette at Versailles, and later a favorite of Josphine Bonaparte, the "Raphael of flowers" gained international recognition for his watercolors of flowers and plants, publishing more than 2,000 plates depicting over 1,800 species. Redout perfected the technique of stipple engraving, using tiny dots of color rather than lines, which facilitated subtle color variations in his work.

This splendid reprint brings together 144 examples of Redout's flower, branch, and fruit drawings. Originally published between 1827 and 1833, these precise yet graceful illustrations are as delightful as they are informative, recording some of the world's most delicate plant specimens and evoking the bygone magnificence of Parisian greenhouses and gardens.
