"Not satiric at all, but almost revisionistic in sentiment are the personified flowers of Walter Crane, which appear in books he both wrote and illustrated. … His figures are both males and females dressed as flowers, with gorgeous colors and poses, while his poems, on traditional subjects such as the floral procession or a wedding among the flowers, belong to the convention of children's poems beginning early in the century; but somehow both pictures and text are lighter, less emotional, than earlier examples, perhaps owing to the pre-Raphaelite influence and the art for art's sake ideal. …" (Seaton) .

Attractive set.
€ 1.300
Beautiful and most extensive edition of this charming and famous work. At the end of the second volume: Botanique des dames (pp. 151-277) and Horticulture des dames (pp. 279-391). The 52 steel-engraved plates by Grandville are carefully hand-coloured and partly gommées. The real name of Grandville was Jean-Ignace-Isodore Gérard (1803-1847). … Of all his work, this is his most graceful fantasy: the fifty-two plates of court beauties in floral haute couture present a suite of fashionable tableaux redolent of the sentimental spirit of French Romanticism, at the end of the July Monarchy and in the predawn of the Second Empire. This briljant assembly of the Court of Flora has all the elements of Romantic ballet with its highly conventionalized poses, fanciful costumes, and magical settings. To these Grandville has playfully added attendant beetles, crickets, butterflies, moths, and caterpillars, those diminutive inhabitants of the garden, in variant agressive or sycophant roles (Wick, P.A.: The Court of Flora, 1981).
