Antique Botanical Flower Print
Henry C. Andrews was an extremely talented and atypical botanical artist. Atypical in that he was not only the artist, but the engraver, colorist, and publisher in a time when most botanical artists were only employed to draw plates. The Botanist’s Repository was his first publication. The series was published in London in ten volumes between 1797 and 1812 and provided affordable images of plants to the growing population of amateur gardeners in Britain. Andrews images have a more artistic appeal compared to the more scientific presentation of rival publications. Decorative and colorful, Andrews’ prints are a lovely representation of early nineteenth-century botanical illustration
