"Early Rose Breeding in Germany", Harald Enders, 2005:
"Robert Türke (1858-1926), amateur breeder, was called 'The Rose-Turk' ["Rosen-Türke"] - but not because of his breeding of roses, as might be thought, but rather because he was a gifted painter of roses and rose motifs on the Meissen fine bone china porcelain, manufactured in the town of Meissen, where he worked.
Türke's roses were introduced by J. C. Schmidt, the Mietzsch nursery and Kiese."
[From Der Rose Zucht und Pflege by Olbrich, 1903, p. 253:] R. Türke, painter in Meissen, owner of a large rose collection.
