"From the late 18th and throughout the 19th century, paintings of flowers were made by Indian and Chinese artists under the direction of European botanists. Many were commissioned by representatives of the East India Company, either for ornamental or economic interest. These are jointly known as the Company School." The artists are, sadly, often unknown.
