Redoute's Roses (1990) by P.J. Redoute

Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) is the undisputed master of botanical art. His illustrations of flowers represent a unique fusion of botanical precision and artistic elegance.

As court artist to Queen Marie-Antoinette and Empress Josephine, Redout drew the extraordinary flowers and plants of the Jardin des Plantes and the gardens of Malmaison, which made him the darling of Parisian society.

Napoleon presented his books as gifts to the crowned heads of Europe, and Redout's images illustrated the works of the most eminent scientists of his day.
