Come live with me and be my Love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That hills and valleys, dale and field,
And all the craggy mountains yield.

There will we sit upon the rocks
And see the shepherds feed their flocks,
By shallow rivers, to whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals."

- The Passionate Shepherd to His Love, Christopher Marlowe

Idyllic, pastoral settings have long been the fertile soil for the imaginations of poets and painters. Virgil's Eclogues, Edmund Spenser's The Shepheardes Calendar, John Milton's Lycidas, and Alexander Pope's Pastorals are among the poetic fruit that has sprouted from the pastoral tradition.

In addition, painters have received inspiration from pastoral landscapes. Such renowned artists as Claude Lorrain, Henri Poussin and Jean-Antoine Watteau prominently depicted idyllic landscapes in many of their paintings, although Giorgione's Fête champêtre (Pastoral Concert) is perhaps the best known pastoral painting.

Depictions of pastoral scenes are also common in textiles, particularly toile fabrics. Days Gone By Decorative Toile: Coral is part of this tradition. The design of this beautiful toile fabric is composed of country life scenes in red over an off white background.

Days Gone By Decorative Toile: Coral is a lighter weight decorative fabric that can be used to add a distinctive element to your home decor. Draperies, curtains, lampshades, slipcovers, bedspreads, headboard upholstery, decorative pillows and covers for lighter use seating are great ways of incorporating this fabric into your decor.
