Description

These Tulip prints normally retail at $45.00 each, and are not always in good condition. We are offering very good condition prints here at $29.00 each.



This is an original color chromolithograph on heavy semi-glossy paper

Tulip Sprengeri Baker, Plate XLVI

Artist: Elsie Katherine Dykes

Carefully taken from Notes on Tulip Species, by Elsie Katherine Dykes and William Rickatson Dykes, Pub Herbert Jenkins Ltd, London, 1930, 1st edition

Size: 10 ¾ in x 14 ¾ in, 27 cm x 37.5 cm (approx.)

It is in excellent condition. There is just some very light age toning around the edges. A very nice print.



"Notes on Tulip Species" was prepared by William Rickatson Dykes, a Secretary of the Royal Horticultural Society and author of "The Genus Iris" published in 1930. Credit for the publication of "Notes on Tulip Species," however, should rightly go to his wife, Elsie Katherine Dykes, who edited the work and provided the 54 plates of tulips that she, herself, drew and coloured. Were it not for her efforts, this work might not have been published in 1930, five years after her husband's untimely death in an automobile accident.

Elise Katherine Dykes was an avid gardener who grew irises, tulips and all manner of bulbs and other plants in her garden at Bobbingcourt where she and her husband lived. From seedlings, she brought many tulips and irises to bloom and continued her husband's work after his death. Tragically, upon returning from the Chelsea Flower Show in 1933, Elise Dykes was killed in a train accident, one of five people who lost their lives. Known by her many friends as the “Lady of Irises,” a letter to the Gardener's Chronicle of June 3, 1933 from a Professor Armstrong said that, “There were no flowers at her funeral; nonetheless Irises everywhere breathed their silent prayer of grace, form, and charm of colour. Her memory is enshrined in the flower.” (Kramer: Women of Flowers A Tribute to Victorian Women Illustrators).
