About this artwork

This curtain was made to hang in designer Gavin Morton’s own home. Family tradition holds that it was designed by Charles Francis Annesley Voysey as a gift to the Mortons, but modern scholars believe it to be the work of Morton himself. Regardless of who designed the curtain panel, its pastel flowers on a translucent background would have glowed beautifully in the sunlight when hung in front of a window.
