‘Too Many Cooks’ is a Giclée print by famous textile designer Lucienne Day. Printed onto 310gsm 100% cotton rag, the print is from a limited edition of 850 and is hand numbered and hand embossed.
Lucienne Day was a prolific twentieth century textile designer, who revitalised post-war British homes with her vibrant patterns and designs.
Lucienne Day was born in Surrey in 1917 and attended both Croydon School of Art and the Royal College of Art. Day exhibited at the 1951 Festival of Britain, showcasing her innovative textiles and wallpapers, amongst which was her revolutionary art-inspired furnishing fabric known as Calyx.
The design was later shown at the Milan Triennial and won an American Institute of Decorators Award in the United States. Day developed an important relationship with interior design giant Heal’s, which sold the Calyx print (amongst others) in large quantities. During the 1950s she collaborated with textile companies including Liberty, Edinburgh Weavers, Cavendish Textiles (John Lewis) and British Celanese and also designed a variety of other furnishings and interior accessories, which included wallpapers, kitchenware, linens, carpets and ceramics. Her work is bold, fresh and vibrant, incorporating Edwardian-style flora and fauna, as well as graphic shapes with an early modernist flavour, which still look as stylish today as when they were first produced.
