Pierre Jean François Turpin (1775-1840) was a French botanist and illustrator. He is considered one of the greatest floral and botanical illustrators during the Napoleonic Era and afterwards. As an artist, Turpin was largely self-taught. In 1794 Turpin was stationed in Haiti as a member of the French Army. Here he met botanist Pierre Antoine Poiteau (1766-1854), with whom he would have a working relationship throughout his career. Through Poiteau, Turpin learned botany, and he created many botanical field drawings that became a basis of further study when the two men returned to France. Concerning their work in Haiti, they were able to describe around 800 species of plants. Through his collaboration with Poiteau and other naturalists, Turpin created some of the finest watercolors and illustrations of plants that are known to exist. from Wikipedia

Source WikipédiA Pierre Jean François Turpin (1775-1840) était un botaniste et illustrateur français. Il est considéré comme l’un des plus grands illustrateurs botaniques de l’époque napoléonienne. Bien qu’il ait entamé une formation aux Beaux-Arts, Turpin, en tant qu’artiste, était largement autodidacte.
En 1794, alors membre de l’armée française et basé à Haïti, Turpin rencontre le botaniste Pierre-Antoine Poiteau (1766-1854) avec il contribuera tout au long de sa carrière. Grâce à Poiteau, il apprend la botanique et réalise de nombreux dessins qui deviendront la base d’études plus approfondies à leur retour en France. Ils ont décrit environ 800 espèces de plantes de la flore haïtienne.
Turpin est à l’origine des plus belles aquarelles et illustrations existantes de plantes. Il a non seulement apporté son talent à Poiteau, mais aussi à Poiret ou à Humboldt.
