Original copper engraving printed in colours and finished by hand.
Published 1734-45 in Regensburg in the great botanical work Phytanthoza Iconographia. This was for the first time, that this technique of color-printing was used highly successful on the continent in a botanical series.
Originally this technique was founded by Taylor in Great Britain. Among the artists in this enormous botanical series were Ehret, Haid, and Seutter from Augsburg working. We find the individual initials in the lower right corner.
