Notes:
The drawing is a reversed tracing from the hair of a figure in 'The Opera of the Sea', a gesso panel from 1903 by Margaret Macdonald (Private Collection). This tracing is certainly in Mackintosh's hand, and it was used as the basis of several other designs for textiles containing tobacco flowers (GLAHA 41492, 41494). This design was produced during the years the Mackintoshes were living in London, 1915-1923.
