the old new: malachite

As Mr. Wearstler is moving away from her “David-Hicks phase” (on which I’m yet to do the old new post) and into the “Tony-Duquette phase”, this new comparison is quite an obvious one. Malachite and its luscious pattern has been a signature of the world-famous designer. Native Angelino, Tony Duquette was the first American designer to held a single-man exhibition in Louvre Museum, Paris. Then recent burst of interest to the artist has been boosted by the book “More is More: Tony Duquette” published by Hutton Willkinson, Duquette’s business partner.

By the way, don’t forget to vote for your favorite at the end of the post.
