L'Animal dans la Décoration



The color of autumn leaves reminds me of this beautiful folio created by M. P. Verneuil at the height
 of the Art Nouveau's ornamental frenzy. Verneuil was one of the most talented pupils in Eugène Grasset's
 Parisian atelier, and executed many designs under his direction for the 1896 portfolio
La Plante et ses Applications Ornementales. One year later he produced his own series 
of 60 lithographic plates containing hundreds of decorative depictions of animals 
and dedicated it to Grasset, whose realistic, detailed and romantic style clearly inspired him. 






 








Thanks to the New York Public Library for the gorgeous scans.
