"Paradisus Vindobonensis" (Viennese Paradise)

Here is the description of this collection of 19 orchid lithographs, followed by the scanned images. No scan, however, can do justice to the real beauty of these lithographs.

Author / Artist: Anton Hartinger, Austrian flower painter and lithographer (1806 - 1890).

Title:"Paradisus Vindobonensis" Abbildungen seltener und schoenbluehender Pflanzen der Wiener und anderer Gaerten und Museen.

Publisher: K.& K. Hof- und Staatsdruckerei Vienna

The background story: Anton Hartinger, was a Viennese artist specialized in flower painting. He was a member of the Viennese Academy of Arts from 1843 to 1851. Lacking money to publish his extraordinary large folio size and extensive work on flowers, he sought investors. And he found them. But it took from 1844 to 1860 to publish 20 installments, seldom more than one set per year. Obviously a period of 16 years is a too long a time for publishing a book. It became increasingly difficult to keep the sponsors interested. Some may not even have lived to see the final installment printed. That is why there are only two complete copies worldwide in existence to our knowledge. Only the Vienna Library and the British Library seem to have complete sets. Since the sponsors held only loose prints in their hands it is easily understood why most of these prints did not survive.

Print size: ca. 56 x 42 cm. (22 x 16.5")

Condition:You cannot imagine how brilliant and meticulous the hand coloring is! The condition of the individual prints is very good. Spotting is very minimal and if any at all, most of it is in the margins, some miniscule wrinkling. Otherwise clean and fine with wide margins. Prints have attached protective tissue paper which has kept them clean. The tissue is usually somewhat wrinkled, some tissue papers have little tears.

For sale: Nineteen Orchid lithographs from the above described work.
