This design "Vintage Coral" is a print on linen/cotton blend fabric.
Based on an 18th century colored engraving, "Vintage Coral" shows a beautiful sea flora in two gorgeous tones. Botanical studies in Britain reached new heights as botanists documented species of sea weed and coral never documented before. This created documents which were works of scientific fascination as well as beautiful works of art. Botanical studies are a blend of art and science, as the botanical artist sought to provide scientific accuracy as well as artistic beauty. Here we see the two types of coral, one which almost resembles a tree, with roots, trucks and branches. The work is beautifully balanced, and is complete with an seal and calligraphy, with a dedication to the "Earl of Sandwich" a title dedicated to Sir Montague, a naval admiral.
