Lise Cloquet, also known as Anne-Louise Cloquet, was a French botanical painter who picked up drawing from her artist father. It is believed that she was also influenced directly Pierre-Joseph Redouté, who from a young age painted watercolours on vellum and eventually became known as the greatest floral artist of all time for his grandiose specimens. Cloquet’s works focused on the artistic details rather than scientific pursuit, proven in part by her unlabeled specimens, following in the artistic traditions of her family and family friends.
