French flower painter Pierre-Joseph Redout (1759-1840) devoted himself exclusively to capturing the diversity of flowering plants in watercolor paintings which were then published as copper engravings, with careful botanical descriptions. The darling of wealthy Parisian patrons including Napoleon's wife Josephine, he was dubbed "the Raphael of flowers," and is regarded to this day as a master of botanical illustration.
This elegant catalogue brings together all engravings from Redout 's illustrations of Roses and Choix des plus belles fleurs et quelques branches des plus beaux fruits(Selection of the Most Beautiful Blooms and Branches with the Finest Fruits) and the most astounding images from the Lilies. Offering a vibrant overview of Redout 's admixture of accuracy and beauty, it is also a privileged glimpse into the magnificent gardens and greenhouses of a bygone Paris.
Описание: A remarkable selection of American forest trees surveyed by Fran ois-Andr Michaux and Thomas Nuttall from The North American Sylva, held in the LuEsther T. Mertz Library of The New York Botanical Garden, featuring illustrations by celebrated botanical artists such as Pierre-Joseph Redout and Pancrace Bessa, with an afterword by natural history artist David Allen Sibley Fran ois-Andr Michaux (1770-1855) was a French botanist whose work on the trees of North America gave the world's first illustrated account of American trees east of the Mississippi. From 1841 to 1849 Thomas Nuttall (1786-1859), an English botanist and one of the greatest plant explorers of North America, prepared supplementary volumes to Michaux's landmark work, The North American Sylva. Full-color reproductions of all of the more than 270 plates are now included in a single volume for the first time. Mirroring Abbeville's best-selling National Audubon Society Birds of America, the book includes capsule summaries of every tree species featured, written by New York Botanical Garden staff, along with reference illustrations by David Allen Sibley. Garden President Gregory Long looks at the book in the context of the New York Botanical Garden; NYBG Library Director Susan M. Fraser examines this landmark of American botanical history; award-winning garden writer Marta McDowell recounts the two botanist-explorers uncovering the continent's arboreal riches; and best-selling ornithologist and natural history artist David Allen Sibley offers an aesthetic appreciation. Beautifully illustrated and extensively researched, The Trees of North America will entice gardeners, art connoisseurs, and nature lovers alike.
