EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the exquisite beauty of two varieties of Papaver (Poppy) - Papaver flore pleno rubrum (Double Red) and Papaver Eraticum rubrum (Wild Red). The intricate details of these vibrant flowers are brought to life through the skillful artistry of Basilius Besler, a renowned artist from the 16th century. The image is part of a larger collection featured in the book "Hortus Eystattensis sive diligens et accurata omnium plantarum, florum, stirpium ex variies orbis terrae partibus, " which translates to "Garden at Eichstatt or diligent and accurate representation of all plants, flowers, and herbs from various parts of the world. " This masterpiece was commissioned by Prince Bishop Johann Konrad von Gemmingen for his garden in Eichstatt, Germany. Besler's illustrations not only capture the visual allure but also provide valuable insights into each flower's anatomy. From roots to leaves and seeds to heads, every aspect is meticulously depicted with precision. The Poppy varieties showcased here exhibit striking red hues that radiate warmth and vitality. This print serves as a testament to nature's boundless creativity while paying homage to historical botanical exploration. It invites viewers on a journey back in time when gardens were treasured sanctuaries filled with wonders waiting to be discovered.
