"Pierre Joseph Redouté is widely thought to be the greatest floral artist of all time, and at Oak Spring is a complete collection of his printed works as well as a number of original drawings and paintings in watercolour. … In Redouté's 'elegant period', as the last part of his life has been aptly described (A Catalogue of Redoutéana, p. 27), his watercolours were no longer painstakingly painted d'après nature, but were the fruit of a consummate technique. It is for this reason that a lesser-known work by the artist was chosen for inclusion here. Le Bouquet royal was a posthumous publication, dedicated to the Queen by Redouté's widow and his doughter. It contains engravings of four varieties that were not included in the artist's monumental monograph on the rose, each variety bearing an appropiately feminine name - 'Amélie', 'Hélène', 'Clementine' and 'Adelaide'. The delicate modulations in hue of the original watercolours are captured with great skill in Rémond's colour-printed stipple engravings" (An Oak Spring flora).
