Artist Biography:

Jean Linden (1817-1898) was a famed orchid hunter during this time, organizing many trips to hunt orchids in their native habitats all over the world, and importing back to Belgium over a thousand species. Similar to other great enthusiasts of the day, such as Conrad Loddiges in England, he founded a nursery in Brussels with the help of his son. Together, they published this superb work on orchids, Iconographie des Orchidees, in two parts. The first series of 10 volumes was published from 1885-1894 & the second series of 7 volumes from 1895-1901.
