9780807610145: The Court of Flora: The Engraved Illustrations of J.J. Grandville

Engraved illustrations of J.J. Grandville. This was the last of Grandville's illustrated books, published posthumously the year of his death, 1847. this ranks as the most graceful fantasies. Fifty-two color plates reproduced from the original steel engravings. This collection of floral tableaux is redolent of the sentimental spirit of French Romanticism. The artists brilliant assembly of Fleures animees- 'flowers personified' has all the elements of romantic ballet, with its highly conventionalized attitudes, magical settings and embellishments of costume, to which attendant beetle, crickets, butterflies and caterpillars are playfully added in variant and aggressive or sycophant roles.
