About the Author
Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840), was born in Saint-Hubert, now part of Belgium. An official court artist at Versailles, he gained international recognition for his watercolors of flowers and plants, publishing over 2,000 plates depicting over 1,800 species. Redoute perfected the technique of stipple engraving, using tiny dots of color rather than lines, facilitating subtle color variations in his work.
"One of the most gifted botanical artists in history."
