About the author (1991)

Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) was a botanical illustrator born into a family of painters in Saint-Hubert, Belgium. He was a beloved artist at the court of France, a professor of botany in Montpellier, a co-illustrator of Sertum Anglicum with James Sowerby, and the author of many botanical publications including Les Liliacees (1802-15) and Les Roses (1817-21). The three volumes of Les Roses were published in 30 installments.
