Series of botanical prints after illustrations by Jane Loudon, showing various species arranged in decorative bouquets, which was her innovation. Illustrated floral publications for gardeners were extremely popular in the 19th century. Some specialized in flower gardens maintained by ladies.
The most popular of these was created by Jane Wells Loudon who published the Ladies Flower Garden beginning in 1842 with 48 hand-coloured lithographs covering ornamental annuals. She later added 5 publications covering other flowers grown in ladies' flower gardens.
Mrs. Loudon's love of flowers is apparent in this statement from her introduction to the first publication:
"The love of flowers is calculated to improve our best feelings, and subdue our bad ones; and we can hardly contemplate the beauty and richness of a flower-garden without feeling our hearts dilate with gratitude to that Almighty Being who has made all these lovely blossoms, and given them to us for our use."
The popularity of these florals remains one and a half centuries later, and Mrs. Loudon's florals are still highly sought after by collectors and decorators. We now are pleased to present the same to supplement our already outstanding collection of floral prints.
