Maurice Pillard Verneuil (1869 - 1942) from Plants and their Application to Ornament by Eugène Grasset. London, 1897.
A pioneer in Art Nouveau design, Eugène Grasset was a Swiss decorative artist who worked in Paris during the Belle Epoque. This pattern appears in his classic 'La Plante et ses applications ornementales' alongside full-page images and borders, both realistic and fanciful by M.P. Verneuil and other Art Nouveau masters.
The Victoria and Albert Museum was established to make works of art available to all, and to inspire British designers and manufacturers. Today the V&A's collections span over 5000 years of human creativity, and continue to intrigue, inspire and inform.
