120 superior artistic studies of plants and flowers, many in colour. Beautifully painted and illustrated by major names in the Art Nouveau movement, there are hundreds of plants and fruit, flowerheads, plant detail and more. Plants depicted include Lemon, Chamomile, Lily of the Valley, Horse Chestnut, Cherry blossoms, clematis, crown imperial, and many other specimens appear side by side in full-page plates that contrast colour renditions with black-and-white drawings. Accurate but with artistic feeling and skill these are amongst the finest works of botanical illustration.
Featured artists include Mucha, Méheut, and other distinguished turn-of-the-century illustrators. Captions identify each image. Reprint of "Encyclopédie artistique et documentaire de a plante"
