Drawing: Painted Process, Spring/Summer collection 2018

This is a Drawing: painted process. It is dated Spring/Summer collection 2018. Its medium is gouache and digital print on white wove paper. It is a part of the department.

This intermediary drawing takes inspiration from the 1851 shawl to your left and translates the flowers and paisley motifs into a hand-painted assemblage. The overall pattern is more clearly articulated than the shawl and is further transformed in the large digital paper proof behind you with attenuated paisley motifs reverting to more stem-like forms.

It is credited Courtesy of Etro.

Its dimensions are

H x W: 154.5 × 77.2 cm (60 13/16 × 30 3/8 in.)
