Drawing, Textile Design: Anemones, Apple Blossoms, and Narcissi
This is a Drawing. It was designed by Alphonse Maria Mucha. We acquired it in 2000. Its medium is brush and watercolor, graphite on cream wove paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
When writing to his wife in 1910 about his ideal family home in Bohemia, Alphonse Maria Mucha made his desires for living near nature clear: “You know my conditions . . . woods nearby, the town nearby, a garden as big as possible—so that I can build a studio there.” Mucha prioritized access to natural resources
in order to attain a good quality of life and work. His textile designs celebrate the spontaneous freeform curves of flowers and plants.
