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.
