    Description

    Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840). Two Prints: Magnolia Pumila. [and:] Magnolia Macrophylla.

    Two lovely stipple engravings of magnolias; Macrophylla from Description des Plantes Rares Cultivées á Malmaison et á Navarre (Paris: 1812-1814). Both are in very good condition. Pumila has two spots - approximately a quarter of an inch in diameter - in the image area. Macrophylla has toning, mat burn, and browned mounting tape to front and back of sheet. Both have light penciled notations. 13.75 x 21.25 inches, and 14 x 21.25 inches, respectively.


    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.
