Whiting’s Ledger Papers. 1895.
All the features—and considerable talent—that made Bradley America's preeminent Art Nouveau master are on display here, including his detailed ornamentation and fascination with typography. He excelled in giving his images a certain graphic rhythm, with the sweeping curves and lines complementing and reinforcing each other until they create a composition that attracts and fascinates with an insistent pattern. Here we are offered a wide frame decorated with a floral pattern, a central design in languid lines and sharp colors, and the quaint typeface with red capitals. It's quintessential Bradley.
