Capania grandiflora


Properly spelled Capanea grandiflora, and known as Kohleria trigridia.

We don’t have identification information for this print. It’s not a particularly good quality print, but the representation of the flowers is quite good. Note the extensive “foxing” (age-related marks and blotches) and the fact that only the flower on the left has had the corolla markings hand colored. The black engraving pattern is apparent on the right-hand flower, but has not been supplemented with red watercolor paint.

Another print of this species can be seen here.
