“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. Gretchen Blue is part of this tradition. The design of this beautiful toile fabric is composed of country life scenes in slate over a cream-colored background. The print shows the inhabitants of a Victorian village spending their day in gaiety.
 
With four assorted images depicted,
there can be no disagreeing that this elegant toile fabric will enrich your home decor. Libraries, studies, living rooms, dining rooms and offices are ideal places to display Gretchen Blue. This designer fabric is suitable for curtains, seat covers, table covers, bedspreads, decorative pillows, slipcovers, wall hangings and much more.
