Known as the “Raphael of flowers” by his contemporaries, French flower painter Pierre-Joseph Redouté devoted his artistic career to capturing the diversity of flowering plants with his watercolor paintings. The Book of Flowers is a comprehensive catalogue of Redouté’s elegant botanical illustrations with accompanying essays by H. Walter Lack, a leading expert in the history of botany. With its impressive scale and saturated color photographs, this retrospective gives an intimate glimpse into Paris in the 1800’s and the gorgeous gardens of the day.
