Art History

Favored for its shimmering exoticism by champions of the Aesthetic and Art Nouveau movements, the peacock feather enjoyed a lively vogue as a design motif in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Its graceful contours and rich iridescent hues were adapted to every manner of the decorative arts: textiles and graphic design; porcelain, glass and metalwork; even furniture and interior decoration. The popular motif continued to inspire designers well into the new century.
