Redouté

I don't come from a particularly arty family, but one long term memory I do have of art is of a portfolio collection of Redouté rose prints. These were always in the attic at home and I took them with me at some point after I moved out - who knows they may be in my attic now. I framed a couple of the prints as presents years ago and was always fond of the images and the thick high quality paper that it was printed on. 


Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759 -1840) was a Belgian painter and botanist, known for his watercolours of roses, lilies and other flowers at Malmaison. More HERE at Wikipedia.
