Why We Love This

This hand-colored copperplate engraving from Germany shows a frontal view of fleabane, once used as an insect repellent (hence its name). Although printed in 1719, the composition is reminiscent of the famous botanical prints of Basilius Besler from his masterwork Hortus Eysttensis, first published in 1613. The elaborate background reflects the emergence of European landscape painting and the importance of herbs in culinary culture, alchemy, and medicine at that time.
