Iris d'Eau

Designer Félix Aubert French
Manufacturer Scheurer, Lauth & Cie.

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 556

Watery ripples inspire a daringly abstract ground, against which the natural curves and striations of the iris petals and leaves are captured in a gently stylized repeat pattern, in this full width of a furnishing fabric conceived by influential Parisian designer, Aubert.
