Hybrid Perpetual rose

The hope of this piece is that we do not forget these works of beauty growing dusty somewhere on a lonely shelf.


A 5 layer print of the ‘General Jacqueminot’ Hybrid Perpetual rose. This particular rose became popular during the Victorian period due to its striking appearance and genetic disposition to re-bloom during a season and survive the colder northern European climate.

The original image comes from a plate in Favourite Flowers of Garden & Greenhouse written by Edward Step. It has been digitally reconditioned, and screen printed by hand with a new graphic addition hand gilded in 24kt Italian Gold Leaf.

5 colour screen print with 24kt Italian Gold Leaf on 50x70 cm paper from an edition of 25.
