Rosa Noisettiana - Pierre-Joseph Redouté - Framed Print - 16"H x 12"W

Pierre-Joseph Redouté, was a painter and botanist from the Southern Netherlands, known for his watercolours of roses, lilies and other flowers at Malmaison. He was nicknamed "the Raphael of flowers" and has been called the greatest botanical illustrator of all time.

He was an official court artist of Queen Marie Antoinette, and he continued painting through the French Revolution and Reign of Terror. Redouté survived the turbulent political upheaval to gain international recognition for his precise renderings of plants, which remain as fresh in the early 21st century as when first painted.

He was painting during a period in botanical illustration that is noted for the publication of outstanding folios. Redouté produced over 2,100 published plates depicting over 1,800 different species, many never rendered before.

Today he is seen as an important heir to the great flower painters Brueghel, Ruysch, van Huysum and de Heem.

Rosa 'Blush Noisette' is a light pink Noisette rose introduced by Phillipe Noisette in South Carolina around 1815. It was one of the first Noisette roses, and over time has been called by a multitude of names, including Rosa × noisettiana

'Blush Noisette' arose as a seedling from the light pink rose hybrid 'Champney's Pink Cluster', introduced by Champneys around 1811 and was the first frost-hardy climber flowering repeatedly, giving the cultivar importance as a parent rose.

Louis Claude Noisette was a French botanist and agronomist

Claude Antoine Thory named Rosa x noisettiana or the Noisette Rose, the hybrid obtained by Noisette from seeds sent by his brother. Philippe Noisette, who had received a government mission in America, and had settled in South Carolina. Phillipe Noisette gave the planter John Champneys a plant of Rosa x 'Old Blush' sent by Louis Claude from France.
