SKU: 00061

A set of 3 extremely fine hand-coloured engravings from:


Flore des Jardiniers,Amateurs et Manufacturiers...

Paris: Audot, 1836. 


Pancrace Bessa was an outstanding pupil of Redoute and in the employ of the Duchess of Berry as a painter of natural history subjects.


In the legend, one can see the scientific and French names of the depicted plant. The name of the artist, "P. Bessa Pinx. " is always on the left side. The name of the engraver is on the right side and varies from engraving to engraving. The hand-colouring on these engravings is outstanding, almost like watercolours. 


They are presented in bespoke frames behind UV70 glass which cuts reflection and affords the prints some protection. 





Height - 38cm
