The Victorian Era (1837-1901) was a period of transformation. In the decorative arts, this vibrant era did not produce merely one style, it produced many. Historical revivals, an anti-industrial return to nature, futurism, and Oriental exoticism all coexisted in the public imagination, and were often found in enthusiastic, if not startling, decorative combinations. The Aesthetic Movement emerged in the interiors and decorative arts of England and America in the last quarter of the 19th century. Strongly influenced by Japanese design, the Movement enthusiastically upheld the notion that artfully ornamented interiors were essential to quality living. Clematis Frieze has an organic, naturalistic feel to it, as was the prevailing trend for design during the Aesthetic Movement. Behind the trailing vine of clematis Talbert again employs a scattered and delicate pattern of gold to softly illuminate the background of the pattern, giving it a dimension and richness that flat pigment alone couldn’t achieve.
