Features Tulipe Cultivee (Tulipa gesneriana)
Tulips became popular garden plants in the east and west, but, whereas the tulip in Turkish culture was more or less a symbol of paradise on earth and had almost a divine status, in the Netherlands it represented the briefness of life
Redoute's roses,flower and fruit are widely regarded as the finest botanical illustrations of the 18th and 19th centuries.
Based on an engraving from the 1700s Pierre-Joseph Redoute, which we have carefully restored and enhanced.
