Description

Pierre-Joseph Redouté was born in Saint-Hubert in 1759. He become famous for his watercolour paintings of roses and other plants.

He gave painting lessons to the most famous people in Paris, including Queen Marie-Antoinette, Empress Josephine and Princess Louise-Marie of Orléans (who married King Leopold I of the Belgians). His brother Henri-Joseph Redouté accompanied Napoleon’s army on the Egyptian campaign in 1798 as one of the 150-man scientific team that wrote and illustrated the "Description of Egypt". The Centre perpetuates the memory of these painters by organising exhibitions of their work.
