Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1756–1840) was a Belgian painter who became the most celebrated botanical illustrator of his day. Called the “Raphaël des fleurs,” he served as a court painter for Marie Antoinette, enjoyed continued success during the turmoil of the French Revolution, and, under the patronage of Empress Josephine, published two lavishly produced collections of his botanical illustrations, the eight-volume Les Liliacées (1802–1816) and the three-volume Les Roses (1817–1824).
All in reproduction "Kit Kat" frames (a term given to this Georgian style frame made popular by the series of portraits of members of the infamous Kit Kat Club painted by Sir Godfrey Kneller) and retailed by Arader Galleries.
