Francis I, the last monarch to rule over the Holy Roman Empire, was obsessed with flowers. In 1791, Francis I of Austria, a plant enthusiast, commissioned Matthias Schmutzer to paint portraits of every flower in his imperial gardens - which took more than three decades to complete. This book features 120 of the most outstanding of Schmutzer's watercolors (only 6 from the collection of 1300 have ever been published before). Painted life size, this high quality large format book reproduces them close to their original size. Sections give biographical information about Francis I, descriptions of the imperial gardens in the ruler's time, and photographs of how they appear today. 2006 13 ½ x 9 ¾ 303 pages
