Motawi Alexandra in Turquoise - 4x8
French artist E.A. Seguy's work was very influential throughout the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. He found inspiration in nature, and his fascination with butterflies culminated in his 1920s porfolio, Papillons. For his butterflies, Seguy created exacting replications in vivid colors using the pochoir stenciling method, in which each plate was hand-colored using as many as twenty stencils.
The Alexandra butterfly is the first in the line of butterflies that includes the Swallowtail, the Callicore, and the Monarch. All three can be shown together.
