Nicolas Robert, a selection of botanical art featuring roses
Transport yourself to a summer rose garden with this cotton tea towel, decorated with paintings of roses and butterflies by French artist Nicolas Robert (1614 - 1685). The Broughton bequest in the Fitzwilliam Museum contains an extensive collection of botanical art and flower drawings, and Robert's detailed studies are amongst the finest. Originally executed on vellum, these paintings are still fresh and vibrant over three hundred years later.
