Seated in Nature

The Museum Library owns two of E. A. Seguy’s pochoir albums of the 1920s: Papillons and Insectes, both of which are collections of folios in vivid color and include design compositions at the back.  Popular works of Art Deco design among more scholarly natural science tomes, these holdings have inspired in many much curiosity and enthusiasm.
