Peacock Feather Jacquard Shawl


Member Price

This elegant Peacock Feather Jacquard Shawl is adapted from a color woodcut by Maurice Pillard Verneuil (France, 1869– 1942) in Combinaisons Ornementales, a portfolio published in Paris about 1901.

Favored for its shimmering exoticism by champions of the Aesthetic and Art Nouveau movements, the peacock feather enjoyed a lively vogue as a design motif in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Its graceful silhouette and rich iridescent hues were adapted to every manner of decorative art object: textiles and graphic design; porcelain, glass, and metalwork; even furniture and interior decoration. LACMA's permanent collection includes close to fifty examples of peacocks or peacock feathers that are part of a design.
