David Becker is a research fellow in the Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Review:

Irises, chestnut trees, and even lowly dandelions morph into stylized Art Nouveau motifs in this reproduction of Plants and Their Application to Ornament. Originally published in 1897, the book's illustrations were made by students of Eug ne Grasset, a Swiss-born professor of decorative arts. Enjoy the book whole, or frame some of its oversize, full-color plates. O at Home Magazine, March 2008

In Plants and Their Application to Ornament, Eug ne Grasset beautifully arranges an array of lavish and lovely botanical illustrations from the classic 1897 design book. Vanity Fair, February 2008
