These floral bouquets were created by Jean-Babtiste Monnoyer (1636-1699) . He was a Franco-Flemish artist who specializedg in flower paintings. Monnoyer designed for the Gobelins and Beauvais tapestry workshops as well as private patrons. His collections of botanical flower engravings such as these, have remained popular with designers, decorators, and collectors till this day.
The plates may be purchased individually for $30 each, or all 19 plates for $200.
