Van Geel Botanicals

An important series of flower prints published by
Van Geel in Brussels, Belgium about 1832.

Printed in black/white, then hand coloured at the time by professional artists.
Each print is 10"x14", of excellent quality. There are very few antique prints of tropical flowers, artists mainly had to rely on those specimens brought to Europe by overseas expeditions. The few artists that did venture abroad mostly concentrated on people, landscapes and animal life.
