Pierre-Joseph Redouté, Paeonia suffruticosa, 1812
Botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759 - 1840) was internationally famous and renowned as the 'Raphael of Flowers.' He enjoyed the support of many esteemed patrons, working as an official court artist for Marie Antoinette and later for both wives of Napoleon Bonaparte, Empress Joséphine and Marie Louise. Redouté preferred to work from growing plants rather than herbarium specimens, giving a rare liveliness and freshness to his flower studies.
