Based on a fragment of design in the Liberty archive from 1972, the colours and the placement of the fruit and flowers in this artwork are reminiscent of the glorious Dutch flower paintings of the 17th century, particularly the work of Rachel Ruysch.
“We wanted to create a design full to the brim with floral elements, in homage to Rachel Ruysch’s paintings. The expressive hand used in the original give it a contemporary feel – a modern interpretation of the Dutch Floral theme.” – Ffion Griffith, Senior Designer
The Archivist’s Edit is curated by our legendary archivist Anna Buruma, the protector and custodian of Liberty’s design history for over 20 years. Encompassing 20 beautiful prints, the capsule collection shines a light into the more unusual and lesser-known corners of Liberty’s archive. Fragile fragments and half-forgotten artworks are regenerated into new designs by the in-house artists, drawing inspiration from Buruma’s favourite periods within the brand’s 145-year timeline as well as from across her own life and history.
