The artist

Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840)

Born in 1759 in Belgium, Pierre-Joseph Redouté moved to Paris in 1782. He was introduced to Versailles in 1788, and received the title of painter designer of the Queen's Cabinet. This artist collaborated with the greatest botanists of his time, and thus contributed to many scientific works. Having lived in the Age of Enlightenment, he has become an essential artist for botanists. Nicknamed "the Raphael of Flowers", Feared is famous for his watercolours of flowers, and in particular roses, Empress Josephine's favourite flowers. His works were very successful thanks to the quality of the line and colours.
