The Audubon of botanical art, in a limited-edition portfolio
What Audubon was to birds, Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) was to botanicals. And Audubon was, in fact, an admirer. Artist to Marie-Antoinette and Empress Josephine, Redouté radicalized the botanical painting, drawing as much on science as on art for his exquisite flowers and fruits. In our exclusive, limited-edition Grand Collection, we’ve reproduced 128 of his elegant botanicals as a portfolio of individual sheets. They include many of his famous roses and are suitable for framing, sharing, and arranging however most pleases you. The linen-clad portfolio box is itself a work of art, opening panel by panel to reveal its garden of botanical delights. Today an original Redouté sells for thousands, and a single reproduction can cost 25 times more than one plucked from our portfolio. This Levenger Press exclusive is a strictly limited edition of 1,400. Only from Levenger.

Nice gift A little disappointed that a few of the pages were bent or had a little wrinkle in the them. Other than that, a very beautiful set. December 14, 2012
Exquisite presentation The word "lush" comes to mind when you handle this portfolio. Everything from the box to the individual prints –– even the silk tie –– is a pleasure to see and feel. A real treat for botanical enthusiasts. Redoute would be delighted. As am I. September 18, 2012
