Franz Anton von Scheidel was a very famous Viennese illustrator in the field of natural history. He collaborated with the scientist Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin for two books. He made about three hundred drawings of Hortus Botanicus Vindobonenis, the three volumes of which were published between 1770 and 1776, and Flora Austriaca in five volumes published between 1773 and 1778.
Our drawing probably comes from one of the many albums left by this prolific draftsman.
