Redoute as a teacher in France

Redoute as a Painting Teacher in France

After Empress Joséphine's death (1814), Redouté had some difficult years until he was appointed a master of draughtsmanship for the National Museum of Natural History in 1822. In 1824, he gave some drawing classes at the museum. Many of his pupils were aristocrats or royalty. He became a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1825. Although particularly renowned for his botanical exploration of roses and lilies, he thereafter produced paintings purely for aesthetic value. Redoute taught and painted up to the day he died of a stroke on 19 or 20 June 1840.[5] He was survived by his wife, Marie-Marte Gobert, whom he married in 1786, and their two daughters.[5] He was interred in Père Lachaise Cemetery. A Brussels school bears his name: the Institut Redouté-Peiffer in Anderlecht.
