Sowerby's Botany - Hand-Colored Lithograph -c1860- MONK'S RHUBARB

    Hand-Colored BOTANICAL PRINT  

This 152 year old hand colored print was rescued from "THE ENGLISH BOTANY" by James Sowerby.  It was produced in about 1860.

This print is in very good condition with minor age toning. The size of the image is about 8 " x 10 1/2" on a page that is 9 1/2" x 12 1/5", with centerfold and blank on the back.  It would make a great gift.

The decorator print that is being offered depicts the plant

James Sowerby (1757–1822) was an English maturalist and illustrator. Contributions to published works, such as A Specimen of the Botany of New Holland or English Botany, include his detailed and appealing plates. The use of vivid colour and accessible texts were intended to reach a widening audience in works of natural history.

Sowerby was born in London.  Having decided to become a painter of flowers his first venture was with William Curtis, whose Flora Londinensis he illustrated. Sowerby studied art at the Royal Academy and took an apprenticeship with Richard Wright.

In 1790, he began the first of several huge projects: a 36-volume work on the Botany of England that was published over the next 24 years, contained 2592 hand-colored engravings and became known as Sowerby's Botany.
