Dancing Butterflies 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, jewel-like tones, Dancing Butterflies captures that time when the simple reproduction of color was a thing of wonder. This print from the nineteenth century features seven species of butterfly, the faint ID numbers still visible, hovering over a beautifully etched thistle in the kind of art-meets-science still life that inspired a generation of Victorian naturalists.
