Event description

Description

Much that we know about textiles used in interiors dating from the 16th to 19th centuries comes from paintings and watercoloured engravings. These range from simple interiors with fluttering muslin curtains, through homes of substance with elaborately-trimmed furnishings, to extravagant royal rooms decorated with glowing damasks and sumptuous brocades. This talk focuses on the artists who excelled at capturing such textiles in detail, while giving a chronological survey of the tastes during these centuries.
