“…we have never looked upon ourselves as ‘dealers in textiles.’ We regard textiles simply as one means of artistic expression…” — Theodore Greeff, President, Greeff Fabrics, Inc.
MAKER: Greeff Fabrics, Inc was founded in the US by Theodore Greeff in 1933 to make a wide range of mostly traditional style interior fabrics and wallcoverings, grouped in collections, for high-end interior designers. Jackson’s book points to Marion Dorn, John Little, Dan Rasmassen, and Dagmar Wilson as key designers from the 1940s and after.
1963 Greeff “Zurburan” Fabric Sample from The Hispania collection
“Zurbaran,” 1963, is from Greeff’s “The Hispania” Collection (#GP4l008) and depicts a lush and overflowing bowl of fruit & flowers against a dusky black and gray background. The lovely fruit bowl is particularly interesting with its detailed scrolls and foliage notes. Print on fabric.
Clearly meant as an adaptation of/homage to 17th century Spanish painter Francisco de Zurbarán’s 1645 painting “Flowers and Fruit in a China Bowl:” https://www.artic.edu/artworks/111059/flowers-and-fruit-in-a-china-bowl
One could make a striking pillow front using the central motif OR, even better, stretch and frame the central motif which would be at about 33″ wide by 25″ high. Perfect gift for a still life painter or lover of Francisco de Zurbarán’s work.
