A special event - Pablo Picasso vintage fabric
This Pablo Picasso Bloomcraft piece defies description. It's a full selvedge to selvedge piece - and features a mirror reflection design. Absolute genius.
The power of these designs/drawings/paintings is in the detail. There is so much in the design you have to force yourself to appreciate the minute details - to literally stop, pause and delight.
I love the flowing hair and the movement in the horses mane. It breathes such life into this piece. I get a little tired of looking at static fabric design that is not 'drawn', but rather designed as a basic and interlocking pattern. This piece wasn't. It was painted as a picture and then adapted to fabric. But it works magnificently.
