From Cooley’s Gardens Iris Catalog 1980 (the introductory year catalog)
‘Reflecting all over the “art shades”  attributed to orchids, cream, gold, lavender, pink, apricot, peach, our ART SHADES will appeal, especially to those of you who prefer the pastel colors over the darker shades. The whole flower is a blend of gold and pale lavender pink. There is gold at the haft,and the beard is gold, The flaring falls below the closed to p of the standards produce a lively form to the blossom. The substance on this iris is almost like pastel leather,it is so heavy. Good branch and high bud count on a really good grower.’
