Georg Dionysius Ehert Illustration from Plantae Selectae Nuremberg: 1750-1773 Hand-colored copperplate engravings Sheet size: 20” x 14” George Dionysius Ehert is considered the most important botanical artist of the mid-18th century.

In 1736, he met eminent botanist Carl Linnaeus, and moved to England where he remained for the duration of his life. As instructor to the hightest of English nobility, he then engaged in his publication of Plantae Selectae.
