Pierre-Joseph Redouté: Botanical Artist to the Court of France

Published by nai010 publishers
Text by Pieter Baas, Terry van Druten, Pascale Heurtel, Alain Pougetoux, et al.

Featured image, "Magnolia yulan (Magnolia denudata)" (1812), is reproduced from <I>Pierre-Joseph Redouté: Botanical Artist to the Court of France</I>.Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759–1840) is the undisputed master of botanical art. His illustrations of flowers represent a unique fusion of botanical precision with artistic elegance. As court artist to Queen Marie-Antoinette and Empress Joséphine, Redouté drew extraordinary flowers and plants from the Jardin des plantes and the gardens of Malmaison, which made him the darling of Parisian society. Napoleon presented his books as gifts to the crowned heads of Europe, and Redouté’s images illustrated the works of the most eminent scientists of his day. His most famous books, Les Liliacées and Les Roses, are among the milestones of botanical literature. Accompanying a survey of his works at the Teylers Museum in the Netherlands, this richly illustrated publication presents a wide selection of Redouté’s books, drawings and watercolors. Several short essays by Dutch and French specialists offer a comprehensive overview of the key aspects of his art.

STAFF REVIEW

One of my favorite books on our list is this exhibition catalogue on the eighteenth-century Belgian artist and botanist known as "The Rembrandt of Roses" or the "Raphael of Flowers." Redouté was the court painter throughout the French Revolution and was very popular with Napoleon Bonaparte, who presented his books as gifts to the crowned heads of Europe. His pictures also illustrated the works of the most eminent scientists of his day. This stunning publication feature Redouté's paintings along with his watercolors of flowers and plants. It also contextualizes his work historically.

Pierre-Joseph Redouté: Botanical Artist to the Court of France

Pierre-Joseph Redouté: Botanical Artist to the Court of FranceFeatured image, "Centifolia Rose with Peacock Butterfly," is reproduced from NAi010's stunning new monograph on the eighteenth-century botanical artist to the court of France, Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Essayist Terry van Druten writes, "Few floral painters have been accorded such grand epithets as Pierre-Joseph Redouté: 'Raphael of flowers' and 'Rembrandt of roses.' Indeed very few botanical artists have had as glittering a career as he: dessinateur du cabinet de la reine to Queen Marie-Antoinette, peintre de fleurs to Empress Joséphine, drawing teacher to the Princesses Louise and Marie d’Orléans and protégé of the Duchesse de Berry. His books were presented to the crowned heads of Europe by Napoleon Bonaparte. And his pictures illustrate the works of the most eminent scientists of his time." Accompanying a survey of Redouté's works at the Teylers Museum in the Netherlands, this richly illustrated publication presents a wide selection of the master's books, drawings and watercolors. continue to blog
