This is such a beautiful original vintage botanical chromolithographic print originating from a collection of prints by John Nash This really is a quality item. Stayed tuned as I have around a dozen more of his beautiful artworks to list here on etsy!

please note, it is becoming very difficult to find older botanical prints! much of what is available is from the 1970s and 80s. If you love vintage this 1948 Rosa Gallica by Nash is exquisite!

some details about John Nash, the artist
"John Nash had no formal art training, but was encouraged by his brother to develop his abilities as a draughtsman. His early work was in watercolour and included Biblical scenes, comic drawings and landscapes. A joint exhibition with Paul at the Dorien Leigh Gallery, London, in 1913 was successful, and John was invited to become a founder-member of the London Group in 1914, and to join Robert Bevan's Cumberland Market Group in 1915.

In addition to his painting abilities John Nash was also an accomplished printmaker. He was a founder member of the Society of Wood Engravers (1920). He produced woodcuts and wood engravings first as decorations to literary periodicals, and then increasingly as illustrations for books produced by the private presses; these include Jonathan Swift’s Directions to Servants (Golden Cockerel Press, 1925) and Edmund Spenser’s The Shepheard’s Calendar (Cresset Press, 1930). A particular interest in botanical subjects can be instanced in this period by his illustrations to Gathorne-Hardy’s Wild Flowers in Britain (Batsford 1938)"
