The Flowers Personified (1847)

- July 30, 2012 in anthropomorphism, cartoon, flowers, Images, Images-19th, Images-Engraving-Line, Images-Illustrations, J.J. Grandville, non-article

Images by the great Parisian cartoonist J.J Grandville from his Les Fleurs Animées – his last work, originally published posthumously in 1847, the year of his death. With its mix of the satirical and poetic, the book is considered to be one of his most supreme achievements.

(All images taken from Volumes 1 and 2 of an 1867 edition of the book housed at the Internet Archive, and donated by the Joseph Sablé Centre. Thanks to the Old Book Illustration Scrapbook Blog, through which the book was found).
