        Ixia Tricolor / Ixia Tricolore [Harlequin Flower]

      Paris: [C.L.F. Panckoucke, 1827-1833]. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Victor. Very good condition apart a small, soft crease to the top left corner, and some very slight foxing at sheet edges top and right. 12 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches. A beautiful image from "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs": one of greatest flower books ever published by the most celebrated flower painter of all time. Pierre- Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in his three great works: Les Liliacees (1802-1816), Les Roses (1817-1824) and the work from which this image comes Choix des plus belles fleurs... et ... des plus belles fruits which was published in 36 parts with 144 plates between 1827 and 1833. The present image shows Redouté at his most assured, combining the best of his artistic background with his skill as an observer of nature. He writes in the preface to the Choix : ''It is with the benefit of experience, and encouraged by the most flattering approval of naturalists and painters of France and abroad, that I undertook took this most agreeable of botanical works. By ceaseless observation of nature, in its constancy and its variety of forms and colours, I believe that I have reached that synthesis of botanical accuracy, composition and colouration that is essential to produce the perfect image of the plant kingdom.' Cf. Hunt Redouteana 21; cf. Dunthorne p 235; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 129; cf. Nissen BBI 1591; cf. Pritzel 7456; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8750.

        Philadelphia von dem grossen Baum zu Kingston. [Philadelphia from the Great Tree of Kingston (i.e. Kensington)]

      1827. Pen, watercolour and gouache on wove paper, with integral brown gouache border with ruled lines in black and white, signed, dated and titled beneah the image in white gouache in a cartographic hand "Pinx[it]: C:A: Düring.1827. / Philadelphia von dem grossen Baum zu Kingston". (Old crease, some light surface damage). Sheet size: 18 3/4 x 23 3/4 inches; image size: 14 1/4 x 19 1/2 inches. A beautiful painting of Philadelphia in the 1820s This superb painting of Philadelphia by German artist C. A. During depicts the city from just beyond the great elm tree at Kensington on the Delaware. Unfortunately we have been unable to discover any information regarding the artist of this magnificent view of Philadelphia. Obviously a German artist, the view is typical of German topographical paintings produced towards the middle of the nineteenth century. The heavy gray border and thick painterly technique was a common tool used by artists across Germany, and was particularly favored by landscape painters, who used this artistic framing device to create a sense of depth in their work. This superb view is obviously from the hand of a professional artist whose exquisite technique and meticulous attention to detail is nothing short of breathtaking. Düring's work presents a familiar view of the city from the great elm at Kensington, under which William Penn concluded his treaty with the Indians in 1682. This view of Philadelphia was a favored vantage point for artists throughout the nineteenth century and was in fact sketched by Benjamin Franklin before he departed for the Continent in 1760. The view of Philadelphia from the Kensington elm is best known through the frontispiece of William and Thomas Birch's famous portfolio of Philadelphia views published in 1798, but it was in fact, used in an earlier view by John James Barralet in 1796. In contrast to the flat panoramic views that characterized early eighteenth century perspectives of American cities, this pastoral approach gained ascendancy toward the end of the century. It represented a more picturesque approach to landscape painting, which would come to characterize topographical views in the nineteenth century. Düring's magnificent view most closely resembles an engraving of Philadelphia executed by the English engraver George Cooke. Cooke's work, entitled "Philadelphia from the great Tree Kensington, under which Penn made his treaty with the Indians" is almost identical, and was certainly used by During as a model for his view. Published in 1812, Cooke's view of Philadelphia was extremely popular and was widely available throughout Europe. It is highly conceivable that Düring came across this view and used it as a model for his charming painting. A true collector's item, this magnificent view is not only a superb example of German landscape painting, but also a truly unique view of Philadelphia.

        Wild Turkey

      London: Robert Havell, Jr., 1827. THE MOST FAMOUS AMERICAN NATURAL HISTORY IMAGE Approximate plate size: 39" x 261/2" Approximate frame size: 491/2" x 37" All works are first-edition, aquatint engravings with original hand-color Published in London between 1827 and 1838 by Robert Havell, Jr. The "Wild Turkey" is widely considered the crowning achievement of Audubon's monumental Birds of America. The turkey is distinct from any European species and so ubiquitous that Benjamin Franklin had proposed it as the American national symbol, preferring it to the eagle. Not only is the symbolism of the Wild Turkey significant, but artistically, it is perhaps Audubon's masterpiece. The first plate to be engraved for Audubon's Birds of America, more care was lavished on its production than any other illustration. Audubon recorded detailed and insightful observations about the species, and expressed a distinct admiration for the creature through his writings. Lizars' masterful skills in copperplate engraving add an especially detailed and precise aspect to the image, enhancing its appearance of three-dimensionality. This particular example is even more remarkable because it is one of only roughly ten that were printed by Lizars. After Havell took over the project, he printed 250 more examples that retained Lizars' name on the plate. Those actually issued by the Scottish printer are among the most desirable, and even more distinguished for their extreme rarity. from the Sax Meningen set.. First Edition. Book.
