BOTANICAL ART - ART NOUVEAU ERA) Foord, Jeannie
London. B.T. Batsford. 1901.
Forty color plates each accompanied by an additional sheet with black and white plate of botanical details on one side and information on the plant on the other, 15 x 11 inches, decorative color endpapers, gilt embossed pictorial cloth covered boards with gilt lettering on spine. Light wear to cover extremities with a few light fingerprints to edges; occasional scattered light foxing most notable on the last two plates of the volume and to the sweet pea plate, but not disfiguring to those images, first and last pages a little loose, overall good to very good condition with most images clean and bright. The first of Glasgow artist Jeannie Foord's two stunning folio publications on plants and flower painting, reflecting the influence of the Art Nouveau era and also that of the contemporary interest in Japanese art and Japanese prints in particular. The exquisite plates, lithographs with pochoir color, are highly decorative. Item #54626
