Botanica - Part Six

Mid-Century Modern 
© Larry Torno

Something about this photo reminded me of the home and office decorations of the Mid-Century Modern era of the late 1950s and early 1960s. I don't watch the show Mad Men, but I'm guessing Mid-Century Modern would fit it in quite well on the retro set. 
     Maybe it's the stark simplicity that I recall from those 50s sitcoms or the looseness and graphic layout of the Matisse cut-out leaves, but this image strikes a chord in my heart. Its simple composition, white background and rhythmic pattern remind me of my childhood.
