Phoebe is a design of magnificently blousy peony blooms which was painted by Lorraine Breger in the Zoffany studio using a traditional watercolor technique practiced for hundreds of years by botanical artists. Layers of color were painstakingly applied to create the subtlest shade of pink to rich carmine hues. The artist took the flower forms from life studies but the concept for the layout originated from a 19th century cotton chintz document found in the Zoffany archive. It is digitally printed on non-woven wallpaper in two colors that also exist as printed fabrics.
