Overview

From one of the biggest names in Art Nouveau design comes this splendid visual encyclopedia of superior artistic studies of plants and flowers. Its 120 images were selected from a rare, century-old, four-volume set of botanical illustrations. Cherry blossoms, clematis, crown imperial, and other specimens appear side by side in full-page plates that contrast magnificent color renditions with meticulous black-and-white drawings.
A leading designer in the Art Nouveau movement, M. P. Verneuil was particularly interested in the decorative potential of flowers, and he created countless realistic and imaginative floral patterns. In this collection, he spotlights the work of such popular artists as Alphonse Mucha, M. Méheut, and other distinguished illustrators. Captions identify each image. A very useful, wide-ranging reference, this volume will delight artists and lovers of botanical illustration.
