The flowers on this quilt were originally illustrated by 17th century botanical artist and naturalist, Maria Sibylla Merian (1647–1717), who was the first European to study tropical plants and insects in the field. These tulips exemplify the incomparable beauty and detail that make Merian’s illustrations some of the most prized botanical works of all time. Our Merian Tulip Quilt has a luxe hand feel and soft velvet binding around its border. The quilt is available in Twin, Full/Queen and King and has coordinating standard and euro shams. All coordinates are sold separately.
