The Ending of the nineteenth century produced magnificent publications brought about through the impetus of botanical exploration, which reached its peak just before the turn of the century. The body of art and science were tightly interwoven. It was a time when the natural sciences spawned the most artful expression of the printer's craft ever achieved. Painters of flowers are perhaps more numerous than painters of birds. Certainly, their folios of original paintings and drawings are in every herbarium, such as Kew in England, the queen of the world's herbaria. The last quarter of the nineteenth century gave rise to the development of the many -stone chromolithographic process in which as many as 20 different litho stones or color separations had to be prepared. France and Belgium became the center of botanical publications. Collectors of botanical art would subscribe to various periodicals, which were released in monthly installments. Many new cultivars and hybrids were introduced to the public through these beautiful chromolithographs.

The contributing artists: Riocreux deLongpre, Cursin, Faguet, Stroobant, Goosens, Godard and others are given high praises in GREAT FLOWER BOOKS 1700 - 1900 A Bibliographical Record of Two centuries of Finely-Illustrated Flower Books By SACHEVERELL SITWELL and WILFRID BLUNT "The works of these artists and others of the nineteenth century French school of botanical artists, and, these for delicacy and accuracy can hardly be excelled" p.61. The works of these artists are given high praise on the following pages of this noted Botanical Reference book:61,79,83,88,96,111, 159. Strobant, Severens and De Pannemacker are listed as the chromolithographers of choice in France during this period on pages: 70,77,89,93,101,103,148,159160,161.
