Too Many Cooks, Lucienne Day – Limited Edition Fine Art Print


Product Description

Too Many Cooks Limited Edition Fine Art Print by Lucienne Day.

Lucienne Day is best known for her furnishing fabrics, but in the decade 1959-1969 she devoted a lot of her time to the design of household goods: bathroom accoutrements  (towels and bathmats) kitchenware (cheeseboards, plates, bowls), and these glass towels, which she made in collaboration with the Irish firm Thomas Somerset and their subsidiary Fragonard Ltd. She enjoyed the constraints of designing something for a small rectangular piece of linen, rather than for a large piece of furnishing fabric, the constraints, paradoxically, freeing her imagination, and often her sense of humour. In ‘Too Many Cooks’, for instance, we have a delightful collection of stylised women: some big, some small, some holding culinary tools, and all dressed in chequered or colourful apron – a competent team in anyone’s kitchen.
