A stunning new collection of brush drawn florals and co-ordinates on silk, linen, cotton and wide width wallpaper.
Drawn in 1948 by the legendary Sir Cecil Beaton and commissioned by
Zika Ascher for use in his contemporary collection of haute couture
textiles, these strikingly fresh designs and their zesty, spontaneous
check and stripe co-ordinates bring the worlds of fine art and couture
fashion to the interiors market.
Sir Cecil Beaton (1904-1980) Cecil Beatons contribution to 20th century
art and design is unequalled. He dressed the stars of stage and screen
with style and originality, photographed them artfully in his creations
and wrote about them candidly in his memoirs. Tireless determined, his
prolific creative career spanned 60 years, always at the peak of the
art and design establishment. His lends captured the greatest names in
every field with an uncanny sense of composition and insight. His stage
designs were unparalleled for Hollywood productions such as "Gigi' and
'My Fair Lady' for which he also won Best Costume Design Oscars.
Beatons artwork is also uniquely recognizable – bold, chic with fluid
spontaneous brush strokes – and still just as fresh and relevant to contemporary design today.
