This exquisite hand-colored copperplate engraving depicts the enchanting Violet Cress, Cochlearia acaulis, also known as Stemless Violet-cress, Ionopsidium acaule. The illustration was created by the talented Miss Sarah Drake and masterfully engraved by George Barclay for the Edwards Botanical Register, edited by John Lindley, published in London by Ridgeway in 1846. The delicate beauty of this diminutive plant is captured in stunning detail, with its tiny violet-hued flowers adorning the stemless rosettes. The intricate veining on the leaves and the delicate petals of the flower are rendered with remarkable precision and artistry. Miss Sarah Drake's skillful illustration showcases the female artist's keen observation and appreciation for the natural world. Her ability to capture the essence of this delicate plant, with its delicate coloration and delicate form, is a testament to her talent and dedication to botanical art. The copperplate engraving process, which involves etching the design onto a copper plate and then printing it onto paper, was a popular method for producing high-quality botanical illustrations during the 19th century. The hand-coloring added to this print further enhances its beauty and realism, making it a true work of art. The Violet Cress is a native of Europe and Asia, and is known for its ability to thrive in damp, shady environments. Its striking appearance and delicate beauty have made it a favorite among botanical artists and collectors for over two centuries.
