Poppy Flower c.1968

One of the advantages of screen-printing was the possibility of having large pattern repeats and many wallpaper collections produced in the 1960s and early 1970s featured over-sized, heavily stylised flowers. Interestingly, poppies were a major source of design inspiration at the end of the 1800s, but their popularity continued more quietly through the next century. This design combines elements from two papers of the same year; the two-dimensional, graphic portrayal of the flower head is overprinted with a stipple effect taken from a paper found in a Haywards book in the Whitworth Art Gallery. The effect creates more depth, while the flat stripe maintains a structure that is absent in the Haywards paper.
