Plaque, circa 1885
From the Mulcaster Building, formerly at 1297 3rd Avenue at 68th Street, Manhattan, unknown architect
69.181, Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Frost
This delightful image of a butterfly-child sipping nectar from blossoms through a straw is cast in low relief with great delicacy. The highly naturalistic though improbable combination of human, insect, and plant life is conceived in the spirit of an Art Nouveau fantasy. This style of decoration, popular in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, displayed organically flowing, often highly stylized plant forms and founds impression not only in architecture, but in design, illustration, and even dress.
