Dancing Butterflies | 750 Piece Puzzle
John Derian is an artist and designer whose work with printed images from the past transports the viewer to another world. With its deep, jewellike tones, Dancing With Butterflies captures that time when the simple reproduction of colour was a thing of wonder. This print from the nineteenth century features seven species of butterfly, the faint ID numbers still visible, still hovering over a beautifully etched thistle in the kind of art-meets-science still life that inspires a generation of Victorian naturalists.
John Derian started his company in 1989. Today his signature decoupage plates, platters, bowls, paperweights and other designs are still produced entirely by hand in his studio in New York City and sold worldwide.
