Unclassified artists   •   Pierre Joseph Redouté @ Wikipedia

The roots for the interest in botany and botany were laid early. The son of a decorator in an abbey, Pierre-Joseph-Redouté grew up among the impressive gardens of the monastery. It was also a monk who aroused the love of botany in Pierre. At age 13, the young artist set out to explore the world. He uses his talent to earn his living as a portrait painter. Redouté moved to Amsterdam. The work of Jan van Huysum, especially the still life of flowers and fruits, he took as a model.

Arriving in Paris at the age of 23, Redouté had matured into a watercolorist. His favorite subjects were flowers, which he presented in botanical accuracy. In Paris, Pierre continued his botanical research and in a few years created the illustrations for tableware about lilies and roses. The picture "Rosa Bifera Macrocarpa" shows a rose whose flowers represent all states from the closed bud to the seeds. Also famous is the depiction of an imperial crown "Fritillara Imperalis". The peculiarity of the watercolors was the bright background. Redouté became the pioneer of botanical flower painting.

Redouté's work was already in the lifetime of the artist much attention to the aristocratic circles. So Pierre could count the Queen Marie Antoinette and the Empress Josephine among his admirers and patrons. Even today, the watercolors are used to study the most extinct plants. © Meisterdrucke
