Redoute, P.J. (illus). Mourlot Freres(lith).
Paris. Librairie Denis. 1939.
Color lithograph, image 13 1/4 x 10 inches on sheet 16 x 12 1/2 inches. Faint foxing to upper edge, scattered spotting to image which appears to be printed, otherwise good condition. This softly colored lithograph of three auricula varieties is from a 1939 limited edition reproduction of Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs by P.J. Redoute. The technique of lithography (as opposed to photo offset lithography) and fine quality paper (watermarked BFK) produces an exquisite image. Item #46583
