As the 17th century progressed, a new passion developed in Europe. It was a time when new worlds were discovered. Sailors went on expeditions and it was not unusual for botanists to be on board on these exploratory voyages. The return of the ships was awaited with great excitement, especially by the highest social classes. Botanizing was part of the good life and only the most beautiful and exotic plants found a place in the gardens of the collectors. At the same time botanical art developed. Georg Dionysius Ehret learned the basics of gardening from his father and took his first cautious steps towards drawing. Ehret's talent in painting and his deep knowledge of botany made him an exceptional painter.

Up to the goal of fame, recognition and prosperity, the young Ehret took small detours. The fortunate circumstance that the many plants and herbs from distant countries had to be catalogued and brought into botanical contexts secured the young painter's existence. Ehret delivered commissioned works for pharmacists and proud garden owners, whose lush floral splendour he captured. The collecting fever and the design of the unique gardens had particularly gripped England. At the same time in Sweden the plant researcher Linné dedicated himself to botany. A pinch of luck and the right acquaintances brought Georg Dionysus Ehret to England. The leading botanists and collectors of the country became fast on the young German attention and strove for its pictures. Carl von Linné was about to develop his system of binomial nomenclature and Ehret illustrated the discoveries with great attention of the botanical societies. Ehret became the most important botanical artist of the 18th century. His style became formative and is still a firm concept in art today under the term Linné style.

Georg Dionysus Ehret took great pleasure in painting the plants. The botanical collectors opened their doors and left the most beautiful motives to Ehret. In return they received their treasures as paintings. Ehret worked with sketchbooks. His sketches show his great botanical knowledge. The sketches are works that show the delicate blossoms and seem to have pushed the natural scientist in the artist into the background. Delicate buds and flowers are complemented by foliage that shows a multi-faceted play of colours. Ehret has transformed natural history observations into works of art. Ehret received a special honour with the illustrations of the spectacular plants in the botanical garden in Kew. Access to the heart of English botanists means having arrived. The great botanical artist spent the rest of his life in England and left behind a comprehensive body of work that still adorns the collections of natural history museums today. © Meisterdrucke
