Biography:

Pierre Jean François Turpin (1755-1840)

Turpin ranked among the greatest floral illustrators of the Napoleonic Era.

In
1794 he was stationed in Haiti as a member of the French Army. Here he
met botanist Pierre Antoine Poiteau (1766-1854), through whom, Turpin
learned botany. Turpin would have a working relationship with Poiteau
throughout his career.  Through his collaboration with Poiteau and other
naturalists, Turpin created some of the finest watercolors and
illustrations of plants that are known to exist.
