Rare small edition, printed at Curwen Studio. Hand drawn original lithograph. Mint condition, framed and mounted under glass.
The print title presumably has something to do with the book of the same title by Owen Jones, issued originally in 1856-subtitled "a unique collection of more than 2,350 classic patterns".This provided a standard reference work, informing designers from William Morris to Frank Lloyd Wright. To my mind Clough is commenting on the 20th century design influences .... a nod to Walt Disney perhaps? If so, some humour here...
