This stellar print of a seashell, originally published in Edward Donovan’s “Naturalist Repository” in 1822, displays a large blue and brown seashell on an aged white background. The shell’s coloration is unique in that the majority of the shell is a dark brown, with only a small portion being a light blue. Not only is the contrast between these two colors pleasing, but additionally, when these two colors meet they form a unique and shapeless pattern that is pleasing to the eye. The aged white background brings a sense of age to the piece and serves as a reminder of the drawing’s scientific origins. This shell is the perfect addition to any bedroom or bathroom and is sure to be enjoyed by enthusiasts of fine art and underwater life alike.
