Iris Virescens, Lalics Hand Colored Engraving Signed P. J. Redoute



Iris Virescens hand colored engraving signed and numbered P. J. Redoute. One of a set of large and impressive well painted set of nine floral works each having history and literature on reverse. The highest peak of Redoute's artistic and botanical achievement... Among the most important monuments of botanical illustration ever to be published. Redoute was at the height of his powers during the publication of Les Liliacees. It is easily the equal in accomplishment of its more popular successor, Les Roses. The work is broader than its title implies, including as it does petaloid monocotyledons in general belonging, for example to Commelinaceae, Bromeliaceae, Liliaceae, At this time, he had as patron and sponsor Josephine Bonaparte, who, on acquiring Malmaison and establishing a superb garden of rare plants there, required an artist of outstanding talent to record them. Provenance: A NYC Socialite Beekman.
