Also published in a limited edition of 25 copies, in a deluxe clamshell box, with an original 14 x 11 inch matt-surface gelatin silver print (print edition of 25 numbered and signed by van Dongen). - From the Introduction by Carolyn Quartermaine: "I think of slender Japanese bowls, porcelain pinched to ultimate thinness, unbearably fragile. The purest shapes, drawn, pushed, picked by the artist's hands, and then isolated, edited down. This elegant poise is remarkably captured in the tulip "Blushing Beauty." The softness frozen in time tricks those who think it may not break into thousands of pieces. The magnolias are carved from thick wax: heavy, scented, floating, laden, and glowing. They are the corsage dressing the light box, invited to the modernist party, pulling you in, innocently tempting you to open the petals, or cup the shape in your hands, stroking the blush colour strained into the form."
