Pierre Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) was a Belgian painter and botanist who is considered one of the greatest flower painters of all time. Born in Saint-Hubert, Belgium, Redoute began his artistic career as a portrait painter, but eventually turned to painting flowers and plants after moving to Paris in 1782. He became a favorite of Queen Marie Antoinette and was appointed as her official flower painter, creating exquisite watercolors of the flora at Versailles. Redoute's work was characterized by its precision, delicacy, and attention to detail, and he is credited with helping to popularize botany and horticulture among the aristocracy of Europe.

Redoute's most famous works include his series of paintings for "Les Liliacees" and "Les Roses," which were published as prints and earned him international acclaim. His paintings were so detailed that they were used as reference materials by botanists and naturalists for many years after his death. Despite the upheaval caused by the French Revolution, Redoute continued to receive commissions from royalty and nobility throughout Europe, solidifying his reputation as one of the preeminent botanical artists of his time. Today, his original paintings are highly sought after by collectors and museums, and his legacy continues to inspire contemporary botanical artists around the world.
