  • Description
    REDOUTÉ, Pierre-Joseph.
    Pancratium Calathiforme
    Paris, Chez L’Auteur, 1802-16

    The highest peak of Redoute's artistic and botanical achievement... Among the most important monuments of botanical illustration ever to be published." (Frans A. Stafleu, "Redoute - peintre de fleurs" in A Catalogue of Redouteana).

    Redoute was at the height of his powers during the publication of Les Liliacees. It is easily the equal in accomplishment of its more popular successor, Les Roses. The work is broader than its title implies, including as it does petaloid monocotyledons in general belonging, for example to Commelinaceae, Bromeliaceae, Liliacea. At this time, he had as patron and sponsor Josephine Bonaparte, who, on acquiring Malmaison and establishing a superb garden of rare plants there, required an artist of outstanding talent to record them.

    Stipple engraving printed in colour, and finished by hand, after Redouté by de Gouy, bearing the artist’s name, lower left: P.J. Redouté, plate no: 352. Paper size: 54cm by 35.5cm.
    Mounted: 66.5cm by 48cm.
