    I envy you. You must have had a blast. Any of these familiar?







    I'm having a harder time finding good details of the original friezes, textiles and plaques online, but will continue looking. Even good quality images of the rooms he collaborated on with Kate Cranston are hard to find.

    Still looking for good details of CR Mackintosh textiles (especially his tulips, chenille fabric) and motifs. Until then, here is some more Mackintosh.



    Panels and details of panels/miniatures by Margaret Mackintosh (Charles' Wife):








    Margaret Mackintosh Inspired Art by Dai and Jenny Vaughan:





    And miscellaneous Mackintosh reproduction freestanding sculptures.

    The drawing I linked was Beardsley The Climax. That site must have some prevention of hot-linking because another photo showed up.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. I should have guessed that it was a problem with the link itself. I guess I must have been eager for the opportunity to post some more pretty pictures.

    However, it keeps linking to Dulac. Is there any other site where you can link to the pics from the Salome series you want? This one doesn't seem like it wants to cooperate at all.

    No history. Just candy for the eyes.

    Lightly glazed porcelain/ceramic figures, vases, etc. from the Art Nouveau tradition.

    I feel like I have to make a serious post now. Here's a little basic info on the artist in case anyone is curious.

    William de Morgan was a member of the Arts and Crafts movement who worked in tile and earthenware. Arts and Crafts movement artists valued naturalism and rejected the mass production of former crafts that increasingly catered to the tastes and growing consumer culture of the bourgeoisie. Like his contemporaries, de Morgan looked to past eras and distant cultures to perfect his glazing technique (which he fiddled with for years) and develop his aesthetic. His mature work incorporated Turkish and Persian motifs and palettes, allowing him to create vivid, naturalistic and dynamic surfaces. While his aesthetic reflected the movement's emphasis on natural form, his work was more elaborate than that of many of his contemporaries - though the Arts and Crafts movement itself was so eclectic that it is difficult if not impossible to define its general aesthetic. His wife was Evelyn de Morgan, the pre-Raphaelite painter, and I may post some of her work later.

    Oh yeah, here's the page I got it from:

    Aubrey Beardsley Art Prints

    Apparently that site was a bad choice to link from

    Do you mind if I find other links to the images listed on that page so I can add them to the pretty eye candy here?
