The Green Florilegium

HomepageHome Botanical Art > General The Green Florilegium
2013  |  Hanne Kolind Poulsen
Exquisite reproductions of a rare 17th-century album of floral illustrations.

Very little is known about the Green Florilegium. Neither signed nor dated, it is generally attributed to the German painter Hans Simon Holtzbecker and originates from the library at Gottorp Castle in Schleswig. The album now resides at Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen. Recently the book was painstakingly restored, allowing the delicate illustrations to come to new life in their original colors. This volume reproduces the original work of 400 botanical illustrations in its entirety. It also includes an introductory essay and captions with basic information on each flower. Published for the first time.
