Created using Tony Duquette’s archival door panels from the famous “Elsie de Wolfe Cabinet” which he created for Elsie de Wolfe, Lady Mendle in 1941. These iconic carved plaster have been mirrored and paired as a series of recurring patterns with the fantasy “Tony Duquette Foliage”. Seated and standing blackamoore figures, so beloved by de Wolfe, were repeatedly used by Duquette in his work.
Tony Duquette was inspired to create a modern snowflake pattern after seeing a friend’s collection of 18th century carved Chinese screens. Here his iconic modern snowflakes are paired with an industrial “Punched metal motif” background to make this original print for Jim Thompson.
A woven “Greek key” pattern originally used by Tony Duquette in the 1940’s has been updated for the 21st century with the addition of black squares at the intersections and subtle shadings to define the original pattern.
