Artist's Description

Paeonia moutan, or Poppy-flowered Tree Paeony. Reproduction from Benjamin Maund’s Botanic Garden published in London in 1829.
The original had the black ink applied to the paper from a copper etching: the colour was individually painted by skilled artists with water-colour paints. Each image was therefore an original creation.
The original is only 2.4 × 3.1 inches and to view it, one has to use a magnifying glass to see all the detail.
Introduced to London from China in1789
According to Maund:
“The derivation of Paeonia is from the name of Paeon, the physician, whom Homer records as having cured Plato with this herb, when he was wounded by Hercules. Moutan is the Chinese name.”
