Madame Henriette Vincent (1786-1830) pupil of Van Spaendonck and Redouté

Very scarce suite of plates of floral bouquets by Madame Henriette Vincent (1786-1830) pupil of Van Spaendonck and Redouté, the most famous flower painters of the period. This fine suite of plates is very much in the tradition of their best work. The plates are stipple engraved and printed in colours with fine handfinishing. 'Two other pupils of van Spaendonck, madame Vincent and Antoine Chazal, used colour printed stipple engravings to noteworthy advantage. Each is responsible for one work whose plates are rather small but of such consummate loveliness that they enhance the reputation and distinction of the French school' (Dunthorne p. 34). Madame Vincent exhibited flowers in watercolours at the 1814, 1819, 1822 and 1824 Paris Salon. Dunthorne 322 quotes only an incomplete copy with 22 plates.
