William Curtis's Botanical Magazine has been a source of inspiration for two hundred years. many years ago ago whilst my mobile phone was being repaired I was amazed and delighted to see that his prints are being used on iPhone cases. There is hope. I am advised that Lewis and Wood even have Curtis prints on wallpaper.
The Coronilla Varia or Purple Coronilla apreared in the Botanical magazine in 1794. 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 plant as it appreared in Botanical Magazine.
