Four Weinmann Tulip Prints
Private Collection, 17th-18th Century Listed Historic House, United Kingdom
November 2020

The George Glazer Gallery sold four botanical engravings of tulips from Johann Wilhelm Weinmann’s monumental work Phytanthoza Iconographia (1737-1745) to a collector in the United Kingdom. These photographs show them installed in the front hall of the collector’s London home on either side of a landscape painting and a variegated marble table after he had them framed in the early-18th-century Flemish style. This part of the house dates back to 1635. The home is a Grade II listed building, i.e. one that has been placed on the National Heritage List for England (NHLE), a registry of historically important building maintained by Historic England. Buildings categorized as Grade II have been determined to be “particularly important, of more than special interest.”

The tulips complement the other fine furnishings in that grouping: a landscape oil painting by John Rathbone (English, c. 1750-1807), a George III marble-topped giltwood side table by Pierre Langlois, and Georgian mahogany hall chairs by Gillows of Lancaster.
