Redoute

Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840)

Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840), was a painter and botanist from Belgium, known for his watercolours of roses, lilies and other flowers from the gardens of the Chateau de Malmaison, home of the Empress Josephine. His patrons included Marie-Antoinette, both of Napoleon’s Empresses and the wife of King Louis-Philippe. Many of his paintings were published as large, hand-colour stipple engravings, and he was nicknamed ‘the Raphael of flowers’.
