Overview

The publication delsc attempts to bring attention to art that is in the public domain but which may not be well-known to the public. This edition is focused on the works of Edouard Maubert (Calais 1806 - Paris 1879).

The sources of antique prints for this edition, with the exception of the Paris map, are from:
Horticulture: Jardin potager et jardin fruitier (1870) by O. Reveil, A. Dupuis, FR. Gérard and F. Hérincq
Dictionnaire universel d’histoire naturelle: atlas (1861) by Charles Dessalines d’ Orbigny

The Jan 2012 edition of delsc focused on J.J. Grandville but the plates were colored by Maubert. Maubert was a prolific painter who contributed to botanical books as well as horticultural journals. He worked with the leading botanists of the day including Jean Loiseleur-Deslongchamps, Charles Lemaire, Charles d’Orbigny, Hippolyte Jaubert and Jean Linden.

The Groupe Edouard Maubert reports that he lived on the rue du Marché aux Chevaux, near the Jardin des Plantes. In 2009, the National Museum of Natural History in Paris paid homage to this artist with an exhibition of his work at the Jardin des Plantes. This area of Paris also includes Place Maubert which is not associated with artist but may be associated with Maître Albert, Albertus Magnus.
