Item description for The Roses: The Complete Plates (Taschen 25th Anniversary) by Pierre-Joseph Redoute, Petra-Andrea Hinz & Barbara Schulz...

TASCHEN's 25th anniversary - Special edition! The refined and revered tradition of botanical illustration, produced under aristocratic patronage, stretches back to the Renaissance. It emerged out of the desire to catalogue nature in all its wild splendour, and it was a process that demanded the most precise and skilful of artists. French flower painter Pierre-Joseph Redout? is often viewed as one of the last and the best of these painters and engravers. Commissioned by among others, Napoleon's Josephine, Redout? studied with the finest flower painters in France and Amsterdam, and developed a breathtaking skill at translating his observations of nature onto paper. His illustrations of the botanical alphabets of D.-M. Guillamain were a landmark in flower painting for their accuracy and beauty. He was also an innovator in the techniques of printing, introducing "stipple-engraving" to France, always striving for greater exactitude in his art. This is a glorious and completely faithful reproduction of his most celebrated work Les Roses, which was published in three volumes between 1817 and 1824. In Les Roses he turns his attention to that most romantic and evocative of subjects, and this handsome volume preserves every detail of Redout?'s masterful representation of nature's gifts. "Splendid roses of timeless beauty. A jewel, and not just for rose-lovers." Stuttgarter Zeitung, Germany

STUNNING!  Feb 25, 2008
THIS BOOK IS STUNNING!! WHEN I RECEIVED THE FIRST BOOK I IMMEDIATELY ORDERED A 2ND ONE. THE PICTURES ARE BEAUTIFUL FOR FRAMING. I LOVE REDOUTE'S WORK. THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS EXQUISITE. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO EVERYONE WHO LOVES ROSES, ESPECIALLY BOTANICAL PRINTS. I FRAMED SOME OF THE PRINTS AND THEY LOOK REALLY EXPENSIVE. ALL WHO SEE THEM THINK I SPENT A FORTUNE.
