Liberty Decadent Blooms print on fine Tana Lawn cotton started life as a painting and was then printed as a furnishing fabric in 1989. Sumptuous, late season roses, peonies and forget-me-nots are pictured in the moment before the petals begin to fall. The sense here is of just spent beauty, of aftermath and the beginning of dissolution, with its peculiar sensuousness and languid , failing energy. An English country garden as the season turns. Decadence indeed. Poster like in execution, perhaps originally a gouache, the pinks, whites and purples of blooms, the earthy greens of leaves are laid out in flat even toned areas with sharp transitions to shadow, evoking perhaps, late low and contrasty light as the day draws to a close. A vibrant cerulean blue forms the ground against which the floral ‘denouement’ plays out. ‘Moore’ 3 button cuff.
