From around 1910, the couple made annual summer visits to the Monterey Peninsula, where they maintained a house
and studio. The relaxed social atmosphere and inspiring landscape resulted in numerous paintings that exploited the
aesthetic possibilities of the seacoast. The distinctive light and color indigenous to the region brought forth more
intensity of color to Mathews’ low-toned palette, and the many paintings he made of stands of cypress trees along the
Monterey coast remain today among his most popular tonalist paintings.

William Seltzer Rice (1873–1963) was born in Pennsylvania
but moved to Northern California in 1900, when the region’s
Arts & Crafts movement was flowering. A talented and
prolific watercolorist, Rice taught at various schools in the
San Francisco Bay Area, including the California College of
Arts & Crafts in Oakland—a center for the movement. He
became devoted to block printing because compared with
original watercolors, prints better suited the Arts & Crafts
ethos of making artwork available to a wide audience at
modest cost. Unlike many printmakers, Rice designed,
carved, and printed the blocks all himself. The landscapes of
Northern California—from the Sierra Nevada to the Pacific—
proved excellent raw materials for his creativity, and his
prints today can be found in public and private collections
worldwide.

This set includes twenty assorted full-color 5" x 7" blank

A fierce foe of modernity, William Morris (English, 1834–1896) drew
inspiration from the Middle Ages, when artist and craftsman were
considered equals. He believed that decoration, in its finest form,
gives pleasure to those who use it as well as to those who make it.
So after training as an architect, he founded a decorating company
with friends to produce glasswork, metalwork, and countless other
crafts, including many textiles he designed himself. The gorgeous
floral and foliate wallpaper designs on these notecards, from the
collection of the Brooklyn Museum, were selected from a sample
book of William Morris and Company published around the turn of
the twentieth century. Morris’s designs—many still produced
today—exemplify the best of Victorian fashion and foreshadow the
Arts and Crafts aesthetic that Morris would go on to champion.

Though he might have made a bigger
name for himself in some
international art capital, Arthur F.
Mathews (American, 1860–1945)
steadfastly rejected the idea of
leaving California. He once remarked
that he would rather live and work in
San Francisco than wear medals in
Paris—and he had done both. A
lifelong artist, influential teacher,
and tireless civic-arts advocate,
Mathews and his wife, artist Lucia K.
Mathews, developed the California
Decorative Style--a signature fusion
of turn-of-the-twentieth-century Art
Nouveau and Arts and Crafts styles.

For decades after the appearance of the first tropical orchids in the
British Isles, enraptured gardeners built hothouses and essayed all
manner of methods to coax their fabulously expensive Cattleyas and
Oncidiums to bloom. Nursery catalogs record orchids for sale as early as
1804, but few understood the needs of these unusual plants until the
breakthrough of 1851. That year Benjamin Samuel Williams published a
series of articles under the title “Orchids for the Millions.” Together with
Robert Warner, Williams went on to write his magnum opus, The Orchid
Album, published in eleven volumes from 1882 to 1897. The illustrations—
hand-tinted lithographs on royal quarto pages measuring ten by twelve
inches—are by John Nugent Fitch, a printmaker who often worked for the
Linnean Society. For the present set of notecards, four exceptional plants
were selected from a copy of The Orchid Album in the collection of the
Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

James Fenwick Lansdowne, OC OBC (August 8, 1937 – July 27, 2008)
was a self-taught Canadian wildlife artist. Lansdowne was born in
Hong Kong and grew up in Victoria, British Columbia. His first show was at
the Royal Ontario Museum in 1956. Lansdowne's detailed watercolours of
birds are similar in style to the work of John James Audubon - often
featuring a specific species against a largely white background - but
his subjects tend to display a greater lifelike quality and more natural
postures than Audubon's.
