Exquisitely hand coloured botanical engraving by James Andrews. An English draughtsman, botanical painter and illustrator noted for his accomplished illustrations. He also taught flower-painting to young ladies. He created the illustrations for the famous nature writer Sarah Bowdich Lee's 1854 book Trees, Plants, and Flowers: Their Beauties, Uses, and Influences.

In March 1857, his painting of fruit and a bowl in watercolour received a medal from the Royal Society of Agriculture and Botany in Ghent.

In 1868, Andrews exhibited a piece called Earnest Andrews, a painting of fruit and flowers, at the Royal Academy of Art annual summer exhibition.

Rarely found in this condition and beauty of colouring.

Original from 1858
