Description:

Baldassare Cattrani, Roman by birth and a contemporary of Pierre-Joseph Redouté, was an incredibly significant figure in botanical art during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.Not only did he gain permission to study and paint in Padua's legendary botanical garden from esteemed directors Giovanni Marsili and Giuseppe Antonio Bonato, but he also won highly prized commissions from Empress Joséphine at Malmaison. The watercolors offered represent a handful of the works Cattrani most likely executed for Eugène Beauharnais, son of Joséphine, loved stepson of Napoleon Bonaparte, viceroy of Italy and eventual duc de Leuchtenberg. (The other possibility is that Cattrani created these watercolors for Joséphine herself.) Nearly unparalleled in terms of depth and quality, Cattrani's watercolors are masterpieces of the highest order. Size: 20 ½ x 14 ¾ inches. Bookseller Inventory # 100319r
