Flower-piece: flowers in a basket on a mantle, with butterflies and other insects]
[by subscription from the author and others, Paris 1825 - Stipple-engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, by Chazal from his own design after a painting by Jan van Huysum. An exquisite plate from the rarest French flower-book to be published during the best period in French botanical illustration. A delightful composition from one of the great rarities of French botanical literature: only one complete copy of Flore Pittoresque dédié aux dame (Paris: 1818-1825) is listed as having sold at auction since detailed records began in 1902. Chazal, a painter and engraver of flowers and fruit, studied under Gérard van Spaëndonck and worked on the illustrations for a number of other important works, but this image is from the only substantial work to be published under is own name. Cf. Dunthorne p.79; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.87; cf. Nissen BBI 350.
