The Peacocks of Grantham Hall is an original drawing by John Malkovich which he created while on location for the series 'Blackbeard' in-between a very hectic filming schedule. John is an Oscar-nominated actor, director and producer for both cinema and theatre. He has starred in such films as 'Dangerous Liaisons', 'Being John Malkovich', 'In the Line of Fire' and 'Empire of the Sun'. He is the designer of a menswear line called 'Technobohemian' and has often used Liberty fabrics in his collections. The design of this Liberty print is loosely based on a detail from a fabric remnant that he observed at a costume fitting for a film. Grantham Hall is an English Manor House in Kent. The design follows the fashion for birds within prints during this period and shows peacocks sitting on grass.
