The Magnificent Flora Graeca: How the Mediterranean Came to the English Garden

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

"The extraordinary story of one of the most famous and beautiful of all botanical books is here vividly brought to life in this ravishing publication."--Sir Roy Strong, former director of the National Portrait Gallery and Victoria & Albert Museum

"Stephen Harris has written a superb account of the story of the Flora Graeca. I have seen the originals and their beauty and exquisite detail are faithfully recorded here."--Shirley Sherwood, author of New Flowering: 1000 Years of Botanical Art

"The full-page color illustrations offer convincing proof of Bauer's genious; his ability to reproduce even the tiniest variations of spines, leaves, and petals is breathtaking. Side-by-side reproductions of the original watercolors and their engraved versions display an unmatched level of craftsmanship by the anonymous colorists. Even more amazing are the black-and-white field sketches, which Bauer coded with numbers from a color chart. Relying only on these numbers, Bauer created astonishingly accurate watercolors full of delicately rendered colors."--Michael S. Gant"Metro Newspapers" (12/12/2007)
