This piece is a tribute to a female artist who influenced the Art Nouveau movement: Frances Macdonald MacNair.

Frances and her sister, Margaret, were Scottish artists who helped define the "Glasgow Style". They were influenced by Celtic imagery, Japanese woodblock prints and natural themes which combined define the distinctive style of Art Nouveau. She and her sister opened their own design firm to produce everything from metalwork to textiles in the 1890s. Frances' work was expressive, colorful and full of story compared to the more muted tones and figural focus of her sister's work. Unfortunately, most of her work was lost due to her husband destroying it after her death, so her legacy has not endured as her sister's has.

This piece is a 1/1 edition carefully created by Maneki Neko.

It began as a text-to-image collaboration with an AI (DALLE-2) to create an "init image". Heavily edited in Photoshop and collaged with other images to intentionally add or smooth details in specific areas, this image was used to initialize generations in another AI (DiscoDiffusion) model.

After more than 100 iterations in DiscoDiffusion over 3 days of experimentation with different combinations of prompts and settings and more refined edits to the init image in Photoshop, a final candidate that reflected the desired Art Nouveau stained-glass style was rendered. The piece was then finished with color and fine detail editing in Photoshop.
