Filigree

The 'filigree' of ornament is fascinating to study in this depiction of Scheherezade by John Austen.

Thanks Jack. It's amazing that there is so much stuff out on the 'net quite similar to what I'm posting, but just begging to be scanned at higher rez.

I'm really grateful to you and Mr. DoorTree and others for the clean careful scans of innumerable treasures.

Great artist! One I didn't know (again!)
And you're so right. This is so frustrating when you finally find a picture you've been looking for and all you get is a small resolution scan...
Thanks again, Thomas. Great job and very educational!

My scans often leave a lot of missing pixels to be desired. I meant to add that Austen's work seems modern to me for some reason I can't quite pin down.
