A 4 layer CMYK print of the ‘General Jacqueminot’ Hybrid Perpetual
rose. This particular rose cultivar is one of the ancestors of the
modern hybrid tea roses and ‘rose’ to popularity during the victorian
period due to its striking appearance and ability to re-bloom during
a season and survive the colder northern European climate.
This plate was originally selected by D. Bois ,assistant chaire de culture au Museum d'Histoire Naturelle de Paris, for volume 1 of the 4 part collection: Favourite Flower of Garden & Greenhouse written by Edward Step and with cultural directions edited by Mr. W. Watson F.R.H.S (at the time curator of Kew gardens) in 1896. Sadly the information of who created the plate is not available.
The original image has been, thanks to the open source resources of the biodiversity heritage library, found, digitally reconditioned, reprinted by hand using modern screen printing techniques and hand gilded in 24kt Italian Gold Leaf by the artist with the hopes that we do not forget these works of beauty growing dusty somewhere on a lonely shelf.
