A copy of his painting of the Apothecary’s Rose, is shown below.
The original French name of this rose was “Rosier de Provins ordinaire”.
This type of rose has ancient origins and a strong fragrance.
Next, is his painting of the Bishop Rose.
This rose originated prior to 1790 and is very fragrant.
The Celsiana Rose shown below, is a very interesting rose.
It has a color of clear pink and fades to pinkish-white in the sun.
This type of rose originated before the year 1750.
I am showing three of the 170 roses Redouté painted in his “Les Roses” Volumes.
I will be posting some more pages from his beautiful books in the future so stay tuned.
