So gorgeous - this is a wonderful celebration of her work, and a wonderfully executed toile! Thank you for posting such detailed information on her life, too.
A toile masterpiece Francesca, beautiful theme.
Lush and gorgeous! I can almost smell the flowers and feel the humidity of Eva's hothouse. This is a fantastic tribute to a remarkable woman, and a really successful toile de jouy design!
Perfect work, Francesca!!
so awesome! xxx
WOW! :-) It's amazing :-)
This is so gorgeous! A design to get lost in - and who better to honor in a true toile than a botanist? Thanks for introducing me to Eva Calvino!
Francesca, this is my favorite toile, ever! Thank you for honoring this remarkable woman in your beautiful art work. I found this quote in a paper by Paola Govoni:
"Calvino himself, in his reserved way, described her: â€¦ my mother [â€¦] never left the garden, where every plant was labeled, the house swathed in bougainvillea, the study with its herbariums and the microscope under the glass dome." Makes me want to time-travel and visit Eva in her garden.
Your intricately detailed toile design is superb, Francesca! You have created an impressive piece of art work to celebrate the life and achievements of Eva Mameli Calvino. Thank you for sharing the fascinating background information about this amazing woman!
This is wonderful! Plus, Italo Calvino's mother! What a great woman!
Oh yeah! I'm an illustrator and I have so many designs in the archives. Some I made them for work, others for me. In this design I modified and adapted flowers and plants to create continuity. The remaining, except for butterflies and birds, I drew from scratch. I discovered this woman's life thanks to Spoonflower contest. So I drew thinking of Eva. And I have a table full of butterflies and flowers!
Incredibly good work and very beautiful. Impressive!
Wow, did you draw this? Stellar illustrations!
LOVE this!! Reminds me of old prints and to honor such a wonderful woman!
Very good, I think it's the best one. Good luck and go on the good work!!!
The best one!
Gosh. Totally, totally love this!
Wow gorgeous illustrations. It's amazing!
Totally wonderful toile and a great heroine to celebrate!
Bellissimo! Great job Francesca! Good luck! :)
Hurrah for Eva! This is beautiful!
Wonderful illustrations and toile design! Thanks for the mini history lesson too...Italo Calvino is a favorite of mine, so it was very interesting to hear about his accomplished mama!
Fantastic! I never knew Italo Calvino had a famous mother!
Beautiful, just beautiful!
Fabulous design Francesca !!!!
