springtime

April 29, 2022

In the spirit of Spring, I close the week with this beautiful illustration by Scottish artist, Jessie Marion King. King was a member of the Glasgow Girls and created illustrations in the Art Nouveau style that celebrated whimsy and fantasy. The drawing below is from Oscar Wilde’s House of Pomegranates. Between the lilac swallows, inky blue butterflies and those flowers that look like fried eggs, it’s hard not to fall in love with its charms.
