Luxury Design, Past & Present

Two large and very fine hand colored copperplate engravings from the encyclopedic book Hortus Nitidissimis by Christophorus Jacobus Trew in magnificent frames. One image by naturalist, artist and art dealer Adam Ludwig Wirsing (1733-1797), plus one image by Johann Michael Seligmann (1720-1762): the Seligmann is from the 1750’s. Hand coloring is done in gouache, giving the images an unusually painterly and substantial effect.
