A fine reproduction of an original image by Louis van Houtte, who was a Belgian horticulturist that set up a very successful nursery in the mid-1800s. This image was taken from the catalogues he published to advertise the plants he sold. Our gesso and wood frames are hand finished by craftsmen using traditional 17th century Florentine techniques. This frame is hand finished in a lemon silver.
When European designers need the perfect photograph or print, they turn to the archives of the William Stafford Gallery. Based in London, the gallery sources evocative, memorable images from large and small collections across the globe.
