William Curtis's Botanical Magazine has been a source of inspiration for two hundred years. The prints are being used on iPhone cases and Lewis and Wood even have Curtis prints on wallpaper.
The Anemone leaved geranium appreared in the Botanical magazine in October 1792. It is beyond reasonable doubt that Curtis was the inspiration for the factory, it is known that Duesbury purchased the magazines. The Derby painting is a faithful copy and quite stunning. We have included images of the print as it appreared in Botanical Magazine.
