Pair of foliage botanical engravings from L’illustration Horticole. A monthly horticultural review introducing the most notable plants and flowers; both prize winning specimens and newly discovered plants from the far reaches of the globe, brought forth to Europe for taxonomy and cultivation, especially showy-leaved plants and Orchids. Illustrations were by A.Goossens, chromolithograph by P.de Pannemaeker making it a colour fast expensive form of printing. Published between 1860-90 chromo by P.de Pannemaeker after Goossens for ‘L’illustration Horticole’. Pannemaeker was one of the leading artists of this time when Ghent became the horticultural centre of Europe. These engravings are typical of the very high quality engravings, particularly botanical engravings, which were produced on the continent in the middle years of the 19th. century. These are part of a wider collection of engravings which can be viewed at Harvey’s.
