Why We Love This

A set of two vintage reproductions, including "Lilium Cruentum Polvanthos" and "Flos Solis Maior." The artist, Basilius Besler (1561-1629), was a Nuremberg apothecary, chemist, healer, and botanist whose magnificent etchings transformed sterile documentations of plants into works of exquisite beauty. He was commissioned by Bishop Johann Konrad von Gemmingen to create engravings of all the flowers in his vast garden. As a result, Besler spent 16 years depicting each of 1,084 varieties of flowers as they bloomed throughout the four seasons, in 367 colored plates.
