Fortuny's Orchid

I am captivated by the work of designer and artist Mariano Fortuny. His fabrics are richly extravagant and and some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

With a humble nod to Edward Steichen's classic image of Gloria Swanson with her face covered with black lace, "Fortuny's Orchid" is an homage to the creative Mr. Fortuny, integrating an image of one of his fabrics with an image of one of the most delicious flowers - the orchid. Where does one beauty begin and another end?
