This is an original chromolithograph from an unbound series of orchids published in Brussels in the late 1880’s by Jean Linden. Linden was the leading researcher and cultivator of orchids at the time and his collection of published botanical plates are well known for their color and clarity. They were printed on high quality paper and have retained their vivid strong color over time. The color lithograph is 10.5 x 14 inches in size. It is in pristine condition for its age; such prints have become increasingly more difficult to find with the passage of time. The chromolithograph will come with textual documentation in French on the orchid. Please see other orchids in our collection.
