About this artwork

Two pulsating columns of black flowers, perhaps coneflowers, shown in high relief against a gold ground, represent one of the Atelier Martine’s most graphically compelling patterns. Curtains made from this fabric decorated the drawing room of the barge Amour, which was part of Poiret’s “pavilion” at the 1925 International Exhibition of Decorative Arts.
