Pierre Corneille Van Geel
Iris

1828

About

An original hand-colored lithograph on wove paper by Flemish artist Pierre Corneille Van Geel (1796-1838) titled "Iris", 1828. Limited edition: unknown, presumed small. Comes from Geel's famous "Sertum Botanicum" 1828-1832, first edition, a portfolio of 4 volumes, of 600 hand-colored lithographed plates published by Brussels in Paris, France. Reference: Nissen 2386; Dunthorne 121. Beautifully matted with handmade French matting. All archival. Matted size: 20" x 16". Sheet size: 14.25" x 10.75". Image size: 12" x 8". Some minor toning to sheet associated with age. Strong colors. In very good condition. Very rare. Pierre Corneille Van Geel (Mechelen 1796 – Paris 1838), also P. C. Van Geel, was a Flemish writer, publisher, painter, and draughtsman. Pierre Van Geel produced the lithographs for this publication, “Sertum Botanicum”, in 1828 from the drawings of G. Severyns. The publication contained 600 illustrations, the majority of which were ornamental flowering plants recently introduced into cultivation. Unlike most artists of the day who relied mainly on specimens brought to Europe by overseas expeditions, few artists such as Van Geel, ventured abroad to study many of the more exotic flowers, including tropicals, that were up until then rarely captured on paper.
