Borastapeter - Scandinavian Designers II - Amorina 1770 by Viola Gråsten.

This print by Grasten is breathtaking.  It uses 4 colors, yet the amount of texture given to what one would ultimately think of as a smooth form is truly breath-taking.  The subtle differences in the motifs, noticeably in the purple discord, successfully make the eye travel.
