The work: Les Fleurs Animees by J. J. Grandville. Publisher Garnier Frères, Paris, 1867. Jean Ignace Isidore Gérard (September 13, 1803 – March 17, 1847), French caricaturist, generally known by the pseudonym of J.J. Grandville. He was born at Nancy, in northeastern France, to an artistic and theatrical family. The name "Grandville" was his grandparents' professional stage name. The work which first established his fame was Les Métamorphoses du jour (1828–29), a series of seventy scenes in which individuals with the bodies of men and faces of animals are made to play a human comedy. These drawings are remarkable for the extraordinary skill with which human characteristics are represented in animal facial features. Les Fleurs Animées are a series of delightful Victorian prints illustrating flowers personified in the form of lovely maidens and their animal followers. Each early 19th-century charming female figure is richly costumed in the leaves, blossoms and garlands that designate her flower. She presides in an appropriate 'natural' setting, often surrounded by anthropomorphized insects and birds that pay her homage. This was Grandville's favorite work displaying his fascination with an animated and psychological fertile natural world. Gordon Ray, Art of the French Illustrated Book, 198: "A little world is created, governed by its own laws. His first biographer wrote: "The Fleurs Animées are the very thought of Grandville; they were his favorite work, the work into the execution of which he put all that was in him of poetic and gracious originality, of dexterity of mind and observation, of that prodigious perspicacity which made divine affinities hitherto unperceived by anyone and discover new worlds. This original engraving stands as both a beautiful and scarce example of 1860's caricature art.
