Hailed by botanists for their scientific accuracy and by lovers of fine art for their peerless beauty, the botanical illustrations of Pierre-Joseph Redouté appear in reproduction in millions of homes all over the world. This exquisitely rendered, ready-to-color collection features finely detailed adaptations of floral illustrations created by the great botanical artist at the behest of Empress Josephine, who maintained extensive gardens at her grand estate of Malmaison.
Included here are 30 detailed, accurate illustrations of daffodils, daisies, peonies, sweet peas, violets, roses (Redouté's specialty), and other flowers. Colorists can bring their own conceptions of color and hue to these superb illustrations, or they can use the cover illustrations for inspiration and guidance in faithful re-creations of the master's work.
