Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) was a French artist, botanist, and lithographer. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest botanical artists of all time. Redouté was born in Saint-Hubert, Belgium, and moved to Paris in 1782. He was soon hired as a botanical illustrator by the Empress Josephine, wife of Napoleon Bonaparte. Redouté's work was highly sought after by wealthy patrons, and he was commissioned to create hundreds of botanical illustrations for books, magazines, and other publications.
Redouté's illustrations are known for their exquisite detail and accuracy. He was able to capture the delicate beauty of flowers with a skill that was unmatched by other botanical artists of the time. He often used a combination of watercolor and gouache to create his paintings, and he was also adept at lithography. Redouté's work was highly praised and he was awarded the Legion of Honor in 1824.
Redouté's work has been widely admired and reproduced over the centuries. His illustrations are still used today in books, magazines, and other publications. His work has been featured in museums and galleries around the world, and his influence can still be seen in the work of contemporary botanical artists. Redouté's legacy is one of beauty and accuracy, and his work continues to inspire and delight viewers.
