Magnolia Dodecapetala | Botanical Illustration | Framed poster
This framed poster with a botanical illustration of Magnolia Dodecapetala is printed on a thick durable matte paper.
The frame is made from Alder harvested from a renewable forest.
Magnolia dodecapetala is a tree with a large, round, well-developed crown. The tree can grow up to 40 meters tall.
The tree provides a very important timber harvested from the wild for commercial use. The timber is regarded to be superior to that of all other timbers of the Caribbean Archipelago.
The tree's majestic appearance, sweetly-scented white flowers, and excellent form make it an attractive ornamental tree.
The original botanical illustration was done by Etienne Denisse and published in the lavishly-illustrated Flore d’Amérique (1843-46).
Etienne Denisse (1785 – 1861) was a lithographer for the French royal court and spent his early career at the botanical garden of the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris.
He was soon employed by the French government to work in the French West Indies where he spent years illustrating and collecting plants from the region and sending specimens back to France.
