Wall board | GARDEN PLANTS


The Revolution taking away the head of the King, the JARDIN DU ROI was renamed THE GARDEN OF PLANTS in 1793. It is the only garden whose opening to the public is regulated by nature: open from sunrise to sunset, its hours fluctuate throughout throughout the year. Marin Montagut sketches it from an aerial view and accompanied by its most illustrious inhabitants, such as its pink flamingos, its dinosaurs and its beautiful flowers. The watercolor illustration is available here as a wall board.

The decorative wall board was produced in collaboration: it was hand-drawn by Marin Montagut then printed by Antoinette Poisson. Marin created the original drawings himself while respecting the spirit of the 18th century engravings. Faithful to the quality of the materials used at the time, “À Paris chez Antoinette Poisson” then pressed her illustrations sheet by sheet in their Parisian workshop, using the traditional press, on artisanal dominoté laid paper made from 100% pure rag. by hand in France. Finally, Marin fixed each engraving on two wooden sticks which wrap around themselves like parchment and close with a grosgrain ribbon in the style of handwritten cards of the time.

The limited color series, signed and numbered from 1 to 200 for each garden, is exclusively hand painted in watercolor, one by one.
