Vintage botanical print of white Chrysanthemums by P J Redoute
This vintage lithographic print of a Chrysanthemum Carinatum is an original print taken from a book of full colour illustrations and is not a modern copy. It is a wonderful image in great condition with stunning detail and colouring. It is a reproduction from a painting by P J Redoute. The image is of a bunch of white multi-petalled chrysanthemums with yellow and brown centres, plus buds and foliage.
Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759 – 1840), was a painter and botanist from Belgium, known for his watercolours of roses, lilies and other flowers and has been called the greatest botanical illustrator of his time.
This image would have come from a book of prints (this is plate number 22), and the left edge is slightly rough were it has been removed from the book binding. Condition is good and the image is bright and clear and printed on good quality paper. The print measures 26.5 cm by 34 cm.
The picture will be rolled and posted in a tube.
