The eternal appeal of a floral design is captured in the botanical art of Irish illustrator William Kilburn. Kilburn (1745–1818) was the artist behind the life-sized watercolors and signed etchings in William Curtis’ 18th-century book on botany Flora Londinensis and also a leading calico designer and printer in his own right.
Similar in style to the work of Arts & Crafts promoter William Morris, Kilburn’s patterns predate Morris’ by nearly a century. Kilburn’s sense of freedom and play is contrasted by Morris’ sharply stylized and closely repeated patterns. With winding twigs, colorful petals and whimsical blossoms, Kilburn’s unique ability to blend local flora with exotic plants is on full display in this design. Truly a celebration of florals, we’ve named this design after the ancient Roman Floralia festival, which honored Flora, the goddess of flowering plants. Though this William Kilburn design is from the late 1700s, its appeal is timeless.
