Viola Tricolor

Count Franz Graf von Pocci’s Viola Tricolor: In Pictures and Rhyme (1875, Germany)

Franz Pocci (1807–1876) was Bavarian court official but also a puppeteer, Marionette theater director, illustrator, poet, and playwright. Viola Tricolor's proto-Surrealist anthropomorphic pansies appear to be his best-remembered work. Read more about Pocci at wikipedia and see this website for more of his illustration work.
