4x8 Swallowtail Butterfly - Turquoise
French artist E.A. Seguy's work was very influential throughout the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. He found inspiration in nature, and his fascination with butterflies culminated in his 1920s porfolio, Papillons. For his butterflies, Seguy created exacting replications in vivid colors using the pochoir stenciling method, in which each plate was hand-colored using as many as twenty stencils.
Nawal Motawi, founder and principal designer at Motawi Tileworks, saw these illustrations and was enchanted. She thought that the bold color and density of design would translate beautifully into tile. She was right.
- The Swallowtail butterfly is the second in the line of butterflies that includes the Alexandra, the Callicore, and the Monarch. All three can be shown together.
- Actual tile size: 3-13/16" x 7-13/16"
