Our Inspiration:Poet’s-narcissus textile

Associated Artists (American, 1883–1907)
Linen, woven and printed; 1883–1900
Gift of Mrs. Boudinot Keith, 1928   28.70.5

The poet’s-narcissus pattern was probably inspired by the designer Candace Wheeler’s (American, 1827–1923) garden at Nestledown, her home in Jamaica, Long Island. “…The swampy ground was, and is, every recurring spring, covered with a blanket of creamy white blossoms,” she wrote. The blanketing effect is captured in this densely composed print, drawn so as to disguise the pattern’s repetition.

This is the only known design by Associated Artists printed on linen; the natural ground color and irregular surface texture may have been intended to create an unpretentious, “homespun” look, in keeping with the tenets of the Arts and Crafts movement.
