              Apr. 13, 2024

              Redoute - Rose; Rosa Damascena aurora

              Est: $1,000 - $2,000

              This folio, stipple engraving is from the first edition of Pierre Joseph Redoute's Les Roses. The work was published in Paris by Firmin Didot between 1817 and 1824. The text was written by Claude Antoine Thory. Redoute's name is synonymous with beauty and in the world of botanical art he is known as the best. The work proved to be not only outstanding in terms of its beauty but also for its scientific merits. Many of the images were after Thory's personal collection as well as the rose garden of the Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison. Redoute and Thory described almost all of the important roses that were known in their time. Lawalree describes the text as being 'of outstanding importance to both botanists and horticulturalists. Redoute's fame is due in large part to his diligent effort to perfect the use of stipple engraving. This labor intensive, and therefore expensive, technique creates subtle yet stunning variations of color making it superior to the engraving alone. Each plate was created using the 'a la poupee' process in which the color was applied before the printing. Hand-finished coloring was painstakingly applied after printing. Redoute was renowned for his artistic ability and tutored such people as Queen Marie-Antoinette, Empress Josephine, Marie-Louise, and Queen Marie-Amelie. Redoute influenced a breadth of artists that followed him including Turpin, Poiteau, Bessa, and Prevost. Redoute is widely considered the finest botanical illustrator of the early 19th century, if not throughout history. The process of stipple engraving and color printing give the Redoute Rose prints their luminous quality. Stippling is an etching process that employs dots instead of lines to form the image, which is then color printed by applying colored inks directly to the copper plate for each impression. The use of colored inks, greens and browns to print the stems and leaves, and reds and pinks to print the flowers, create a more luminous print by eliminating the necessity to paint watercolor over a back inked image.

              Apr. 06, 2024

              REDOUTE ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR OF A BOUQUET WITH ROSES AND CARNATIONS

              Est: $80,000 - $120,000

              REDOUTE, Pierre-Joseph (Belgian, 1759-1840). Bouquet with Roses and Carnations. Watercolor on vellum. Signed and dated: "P. J. Redoute 1834." 13 1/2" x 10 3/4" vellum, 25" x 21 3/4" framed. The unequalled botanical artist, Pierre-Joseph Redoute, occupies a central position in the development of European flower painting. Redoute had as pupils or patrons five queens and empresses of France, from Marie-Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in a turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, a testament to his greatness as an artist. Les Liliacees, Redoute's largest and most ambitious work, is generally considered to be the artist's masterpiece. Produced under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, for whom Redoute worked as botanical artist at her estate at Malmaison, this pristine example represents a landmark work in the field of flower illustration. The title is misleading, for the work covers a much broader scope: the work includes representatives of the lily, amaryllis, iris, orchid, and other families. The plates were executed by means of stipple engraving, which, as noted, was a method that the artist himself perfected when he was unsatisfied with the effects garnered by traditional copper-plate engraving. As he shrewdly observed, the delicacy and subtle elegance of his compositions could only be captured using an equally fine printing method. Les Liliacees records the plants of the lily family and related flowers that Josephine collected for her gardens at Malmaison. Redoute's small drawings, placed at the bottom of the main illustrations, record the anatomical features of each species so that each flower could be identified with precision and cultivated to perfection. Redoute's work represents a uniquely harmonious blend of scientific precision and supremely delicate artistry. "Jardin de la Malmaison" was sponsored by the Empress Josephine, and its plates depict specimens from her gardens, which Ventenat praised in his dedication as a conjunction of "the rarest plants of the French soil [and] the sweetest souvenir of the conquests of your illustrious consort." While the first quarter of the nineteenth century was dominated by his work on Les Liliacees and Les Roses, Redoute also produced a selection of other original works not necessarily destined for re-creation in published form. Some of these watercolors were additional studies from the Empress Josephine's gardens at Malmaison. These exhibit the same virtuosity as his studies for Les Liliacees and Les Roses, showing the same hallmarks of a white vellum background and bluegreen leaves that Redoute so favored. Redoute was first brought to Royal patronage by Marie-Antoinette in 1788 when she appointed him Dessinatteur du Cabinet de la Reine and granted him access to the Petit Trianon. From then until the end of his long life Redoute weathered the political storms of France with remarkable ease "he survived the difficult years of the Revolution and the Restoration and found approval with all the rulers who changed in quick succession" (Hinz). However it was ten years later that his most creative period began under the patronage of the Empress Josephine when she acquired the Malmaison Chateau in Rueil, south of Paris: "she was passionately interested in botany and horticulture, and the design and layout of the Malmaison chateau garden became her personal concern. She went to great efforts to collect beautiful and rare plants from all over the world and to cultivate them in her gardens?" (Hinz). Redoute had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie Antoinette to Josephine's successor, the Empress Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in this turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, eventually contributing to over fifty books on natural history and archaeology.

              Apr. 06, 2024

              REDOUTE ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR FROM LES LILIACEES OF HOSTA VENTRICOSA

              Est: $100,000 - $150,000

              REDOUTE, Pierre-Joseph (Belgian, 1759-1840). [Hosta Ventricosa] Original watercolor for plate 106 Les Liliacees. Watercolor on vellum. Signed lower left: "P. J. Redoute." 18 1/2" x 13" vellum, 27 1/2" x 21 1/2" framed. Hosta ventricosa, the blue plantain lily, is a species of flowering plant in the family Asparagaceae, native to southeast and south-central China, and introduced to the eastern United States. Les Liliacees represents the culmination of Redoute's art in many ways: it is his largest single work; it depicts specimens of the liliacae family, often serving as the first known depictions of these specimens; finally, it contains Redoute's most extensive use of stipple-engraving, a technique which he pioneered in France. Redoute published Les Liliacees under his own name, but the work owes much to the patronage of Empress Josephine Buonaparte. The pair's association began in 1798, when Redoute painted watercolors for the Empress's bedroom at Malmaison and contributed to the record of the plants in the extensive gardens found there, which were later published in Ventenat's "Jardin de la Malmaison" and Bonpland's "Description des Plantes Rares Cultivees Malmaison et Navarre". In each illustration, the flowers are classical, "portraits", defined by lack of backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves.

              Est: $3,000 - $5,000

              This large folio, stipple engraving is from the first edition of Pierre Joseph Redoute's Les Roses. The work was published in Paris by Firmin Didot between 1817 and 1824. The large paper rose engravings were believed to have only been printed perhaps 15 times and thus are quite impressive and noteworthy. Redoute's name is synonymous with beauty and in the world of botanical art he is known as the best. The work proved to be not only outstanding in terms of its beauty but also for its scientific merits. Many of the images were after Thory's personal collection as well as the rose garden of the Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison. Redoute and Thory described almost all of the important roses that were known in their time. Lawalree describes the text as being 'of outstanding importance to both botanists and horticulturalists. Redoute's fame is due in large part to his diligent effort to perfect the use of stipple engraving. This labor intensive, and therefore expensive, technique creates subtle yet stunning variations of color making it superior to the engraving alone. Each plate was created using the 'a la poupee' process in which the color was applied before the printing. Hand-finished coloring was painstakingly applied after printing. Redoute was renowned for his artistic ability and tutored such people as Queen Marie-Antoinette, Empress Josephine, Marie-Louise, and Queen Marie-Amelie. Redoute influenced a breadth of artists that followed him including Turpin, Poiteau, Bessa, and Prevost. Redoute is widely considered the finest botanical illustrator of the early 19th century, if not throughout history. The process of stipple engraving and color printing give the Redoute Rose prints their luminous quality. Stippling is an etching process that employs dots instead of lines to form the image, which is then color printed by applying colored inks directly to the copper plate for each impression. The use of colored inks, greens and browns to print the stems and leaves, and reds and pinks to print the flowers, create a more luminous print by eliminating the necessity to paint watercolor over a back inked image.

Duhamel conducted experimental research on plant physiology and ecology and published numerous works on agriculture, trees, and shrubs. His "Trait des arbres fruitiers" (1768) was one of the rarest and finest botanical books issued from France during the period from the late 18th to the early 19th century. Pierre Joseph Redoute (French, 1759-1840) was born into a family of artists in what we call Belgium today. From an early age, his family recognized his talent and Redoute was encouraged to pursue his art. In time, Redoute became associated with royals, having five queens and empresses of France, from Marie-Antoinette to the Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise, for pupils or patrons. Although he lived during a turbulent period with many regime changes, Redoute was able to work without interruptions in his career, and created over fifty books on natural history and archeology.

              Mar. 23, 2024

              Redoute, Rare, Large Folio - Rose - Rosa Noisettiana

              Est: $3,000 - $5,000

              This large folio, stipple engraving is from the first edition of Pierre Joseph Redoute's Les Roses. The work was published in Paris by Firmin Didot between 1817 and 1824. The large paper rose engravings were believed to have only been printed perhaps 15 times and thus are quite impressive and noteworthy. Redoute's name is synonymous with beauty and in the world of botanical art he is known as the best. The work proved to be not only outstanding in terms of its beauty but also for its scientific merits. Many of the images were after Thory's personal collection as well as the rose garden of the Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison. Redoute and Thory described almost all of the important roses that were known in their time. Lawalree describes the text as being 'of outstanding importance to both botanists and horticulturalists. Redoute's fame is due in large part to his diligent effort to perfect the use of stipple engraving. This labor intensive, and therefore expensive, technique creates subtle yet stunning variations of color making it superior to the engraving alone. Each plate was created using the 'a la poupee' process in which the color was applied before the printing. Hand-finished coloring was painstakingly applied after printing. Redoute was renowned for his artistic ability and tutored such people as Queen Marie-Antoinette, Empress Josephine, Marie-Louise, and Queen Marie-Amelie. Redoute influenced a breadth of artists that followed him including Turpin, Poiteau, Bessa, and Prevost. Redoute is widely considered the finest botanical illustrator of the early 19th century, if not throughout history. The process of stipple engraving and color printing give the Redoute Rose prints their luminous quality. Stippling is an etching process that employs dots instead of lines to form the image, which is then color printed by applying colored inks directly to the copper plate for each impression. The use of colored inks, greens and browns to print the stems and leaves, and reds and pinks to print the flowers, create a more luminous print by eliminating the necessity to paint watercolor over a back inked image.

              **First Time At Auction** Etienne Geoffrey de Saint Hilaire (French, 1772-1844) and Henri Joseph Redoute (Belgian, 1766-1852). 17 copperplate engravings of fish for "H.N. Zoologie Poissons du Nil" - published in Paris, ca. 1809-28. Seventeen 19th century large-scale original engravings of fish - plates 1,2 and 6 through 17 - engraved by Henri Joseph Redoute for French naturalist Etienne Geoffrey de Saint Hilaire's contribution to Napoleon's expedition to Egypt in 1812. Each is rendered with realistic anatomy and labeled with the names of the species. Saint Hilaire accompanied Napoleon on his conquest of Egypt in 1798 and made contributions to the 24 volumes of the Description de l'Egypte (1809-28) having made observations of various mammals, reptiles, and fish. Size: 27.75" L x 21.5" W (70.5 cm x 54.6 cm) Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire was a French biologist who established a theory of "unity of composition". This principle postulated a major theme of comparative anatomy - that there is a single structural plan shared by all animals. Geoffroy also founded teratology which is the study of animal malformation. Geoffrey initially earned a law degree in 1790 and then studied medicine under Louis Daubenton. The next year, Daubenton appointed Geoffroy as superintendent of the cabinet of zoology at the Jardin des Plantes, a predecessor of the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle. Geoffroy also accompanied Napoleon on his conquest of Egypt in 1798, contributing to the 24 volumes of the Description de l'Egypte (1809?28; Description of Egypt). He later would transport specimens collected in Egypt to France. Following his appointment as Professor of Zoology at the University of Paris in 1809, his research established a "unity of organic composition". Upon attempting to apply this notion to invertebrates in 1830, French naturalist Georges Cuvier disputed his theory. Geoffroy's theory would create a receptive audience for Charles Darwin's evolutionary theory, but Cuvier opposed evolution.

The work proved to be not only outstanding in terms of its beauty but also for its scientific merits.

Redoute and Thory described almost all of the important roses that were known in their time. Lawalree describes the text as being 'of outstanding importance to both botanists and horticulturalists. Redoute's fame is due in large part to his diligent effort to perfect the use of stipple engraving.

Each plate was created using the 'a la poupee' process in which the color was applied before the printing. Hand-finished coloring was painstakingly applied after printing. Redoute was renowned for his artistic ability and tutored such people as Queen Marie-Antoinette, Empress Josephine, Marie-Louise, and Queen Marie-Amelie. Redoute influenced a breadth of artists that followed him including Turpin, Poiteau, Bessa, and Prevost. Redoute is widely considered the finest botanical illustrator of the early 19th century, if not throughout history. The process of stipple engraving and color printing give the Redoute Rose prints their luminous quality. Stippling is an etching process that employs dots instead of lines to form the image, which is then color printed by applying colored inks directly to the copper plate for each impression. The use of colored inks, greens and browns to print the stems and leaves, and reds and pinks to print the flowers, create a more luminous print by eliminating the necessity to paint watercolor over a back inked image.

Surnommé le « le Raphaël des fleurs », il s'installe aux côtés de son frère Antoine-Ferdinand à Paris où il rencontre Charles Louis L'Héritier de Brutelle et René Desfontaines qui l'orientent vers l'illustration botanique, discipline alors en plein essor. En 1787, il part étudier les plantes aux jardins botaniques royaux de Kew près de Londres. Rentré à Paris, l'Héritier l'introduit à la cour de Versailles. La Reine Marie-Antoinette devient sa protectrice. Il reçoit le titre de dessinateur et peintre du Cabinet de la Reine et en 1798, Joséphine de Beauharnais devient sa protectrice et en fait, quelques années plus tard, son peintre officiel. Redouté traverse, sans grand problème, les crises politiques successives et survit aux différents régimes politiques. Il collabore avec les plus grands botanistes de son temps et participera à près d'une cinquantaine d'ouvrages comme illustrateur et éditeur. L'Institut Redouté-Peiffer à Bruxelles, le jardin Pierre-Joseph-Redouté à Paris et le prix Pierre Joseph Redouté portent son nom en son hommage.

              REDOUTÉ, Pierre-Joseph (Belgian, 1759-1840). Globba Nutans, Globbee Pendante, Plate 60. Stipple engraving with original hand color from Les Liliacees. Paris, 1802-1816. 21 1/4" x 14 1/4" sheet, 31 1/2" x 24 1/2" framed. Les Liliacees represents the culmination of Redoute's art in many ways: it is his largest single work; it depicts specimens of the liliacae family, often serving as the first known depictions of these specimens; finally, it contains Redoute's most extensive use of stipple-engraving, a technique which he pioneered in France. Redoute published Les Liliacees under his own name, but the work owes much to the patronage of Empress Josephine Buonaparte. The pair's association began in 1798, when Redoute painted watercolors for the Empress's bedroom at Malmaison and contributed to the record of the plants in the extensive gardens found there, which were later published in Ventenat's Jardin de la Malmaison and Bonpland's Description des Plantes Rares Cultivees Malmaison et Navarre. In each illustration, the flowers are classical "‚ "portraits", defined by lack of backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves.
