    Description

    Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840). Three Prints: Narcissus Candidisimus. [and:] Phalangium Liliastrum. [and:] Gladiolus Carneus.

    Three lovely and delicate stipple engravings with hand-coloring, from Les Liliacées (Paris: 1802-1816). Narcissus Candidisimus is remarkably bright, with a couple of chips and some minor surface loss around the edges. Phalangium Liliastrum, has a shallow fold across the bottom right quadrant. The Gladiolus is toned, with offsetting from a page of text that was, at one point, opposite it; there is also a 1 x 3.25-inch area of offsetting at the top left corner. All have mounting tape to reverse. All have light penciled notations. 13.75 x 21 inches, 14 x 21 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.
