A friend of mine recently bought a copy of a Japanese wood engraving. While reading this article from BibliOdyssey, about the wood engravings of Kitagawa Utamaro, I thought I should share some of the pictures of this artist.
Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) is certianly considered the greatest drawing artist of plants and flowers. Many copies of his paintings and engravings are available on line. Why not start with his page on BiblioOdyssey?
