Barge Rousse by Rene Fumeron
I'll be back next week with lots more retro love for you. In the meantime, I'm sharing a picture of this amazing textile Barge Rousse by French artist Rene Fumeron from 1950. Everything about this piece is heaven: the understated color palette, the subject matter (birds, trees, branches, leaves), the harmony of the composition, the pleasing verticality of the design, the lovely delicate leaves. (sigh) I could daydream of this beautiful design all day.
