EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite hand-colored copperplate engraving showcases the enchanting beauty of Pansy, Pensee, or Viola tricolor var. hortensis. The intricately detailed illustration is taken from Charles Malos Guirlande de Flore, a 19th-century French gift book for ladies, featuring fine miniature botanicals by the renowned flower painter, Pancrace Bessa. Bessa, one of the greatest French flower painters of his time, meticulously captured the delicate features of this beloved flower, with its distinctive tricolor markings of red, purple, and white. The engraving also includes several companion flowers, such as the Lily (Lilium candidum), Everlasting (Helichrysum sanguineum), and the Lys or Immortelle (Lilium lysimachium). The engraving process involved the use of a copper plate, which was first etched with a design, then covered with a ground, and finally inked and wiped to create the negative image. The plate was then pressed onto paper, transferring the image, which was then hand-colored, resulting in the stunning, vibrant depiction of these flowers. This beautiful and intricate artwork, a testament to Bessa's mastery of botanical illustration, invites us to appreciate the captivating allure of nature's palette. The Pansy, Pensee, Viola tricolor var. hortensis, with its timeless charm, continues to be a favorite among gardeners and flower enthusiasts, making this engraving a true treasure for any botanical art collection.
