    Description

    Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1840). Four Rose Prints: Rosa Indica. [and:] Rosa Gallica (Purpuro-violacea magna). [and:] Rosa Gallica Regalis. [and:] Rosa Multiflora platyphylla.

    Four lovely hand-colored stipple engravings from Les Roses (Paris: 1817-1824). All are in very good condition with general toning to paper, a little darker along the edges. Rosa Indica has a partial mat board glued to top edge on reverse and a small chip on the left edge. All have mounting tape to the reverse, and all have light penciled notations. All measure 9.75 x 13.25 inches.


    More Information: Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840), the Belgian painter and botanist, is the most widely-known of all the flower painters. Redouté perfected the stipple engraving technique and employed it in his more than 2,100 published plates depicting over 1,800 species, many of which had never before been rendered. As the official court artist of Queen Marie Antoinette, and later under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, Redouté's career flourished, and his works reached a large and prosperous audience. Redouté's most popular and highly-praised works were those collected in Les Roses and Les Liliacées, many of which we are proud to present here.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
