Very little is known about the Scottish
artist Jeannie Foord. She published two volumes of
flower studies, specifically of flowers whose decorative
grace impressed her. She wrote in her author's
preface that the flower studies were intended to aid art
students who might not be able to take their inspiration
directly from nature, although she strongly suggested
students seek nature for themselves. Artisans in
the Arts & Crafts movement converted her images into
designs for stained glass, fabric, and woodwork.
The delicate colors were created by the “pochoir” process, wherein single layers of color were added by hand to a lithograph using a stencil, in a precursor of the silk screening technique which is now widely used for art prints.
These pochoir prints were created in Paris by E.
Greningaire from the original drawings of Foord. The
strong influence of the Japanese woodblock print designs
so popular in Europe at the time is noted in the work.
The prints are in beautiful condition. Each print measures
approximately 10 1/2" by 14 1/2 inches. The plants
are displayed with a delicate grace and beauty that is a
testament to the artistry of Foord & the art Nouveau
concepts that inspired her.
