Product description

About the Author

About the Illustrator Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) Pierre-Joseph Redouté was born to a Flemish family of decorative painters. As a young man he went to Paris, where he began painting the flowers of the royal gardens. His detailed etchings caught the attention of botanists who taught him more about the anatomy of plants and artists who introduced him to a new watercolor technique for illustrating flowers. Marie Antoinette hired Redouté to decorate the walls of her château. By the late 1790s Redouté had become the most famous and sought after flower painter in Europe. Empress Josephine invited him to come to Château de Malmaison to paint the flowers in her magnificent garden, which held over 200 varieties of roses. Between 1817 and 1824 Redouté published a three-volume collection of his rose paintings called Les Rose, his most famous publication. Since roses were Redouté s trademark, we have included four of his rose paintings in this Botanical Inspirations deck.
