macrahanish fabric by Robert Stewart (Classic Textiles)
Robert Stewart, the Scottish designer and artist, was a contemporary of Lucienne Day and one of the few designers she admired. A prolific worker, Stewart produced paintings, tapestries, graphics, ceramics and murals but it is his textile designs that have been the most influential, in particular those produced by Liberty, Pringle and Donald Brothers in the 1950's. Stewart's work has recently been investigated in a major research project at Glasgow School of Art, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board, and is the subject of a new book, Robert Stewart, Design 1946-95, by Liz Arthur ISBN 0-7136-6410-X (from http://www.classictextiles.com)
Blue nostalgia with a little edge. Would make a great occasional pillow.
