The introduction of the Linnaean sexual system of plant classification in 1737 and its almost universal acceptance gave a tremendous impetus to the production of illustrated botanical books. Benefiting from improved printing techniques, botanical depiction in the latter half of the 18th century saw the marriage of beauty and scientific accuracy. Artists such as Redouté profited from developments in printmaking, e.g. the technique of stipple engraving, which effectively produced tone or shading as part of the printmaking process.
