European Folk Art Designs (Dover Pictorial Archive) (Paperback)
This handsome collection contains scores of unique images based on folk art designs created by artists of Austria, Poland, Hungary, Russia, Switzerland, and other European countries.
Adapted from authentic sources, 265 original renderings depict scores of charming motifs incorporating florals, wildlife, riders on horseback, mythical figures, men and women in traditional costumes, and religious and secular motifs. Ideal for adding a touch of Old World flavor to a variety of projects, these eye-catching, stylized designs appear in assorted configurations, among them borders, squares, circles, medallions, and rectangles.
Painstakingly reproduced and attractively presented, the designs represent a valuable resource of inspirational and practical art. The collection will be a major addition to the bookshelves of artists, designer, and craftworkers.
