Italian Renaissance embroidery and carpet-weaving, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Italian Renaissance embroidery and carpet-weaving, (1898). Fig 1: Embroidery on an ecclesiastical mantle in S. Croce at Florence'. Fig 2: Embroidered little velvet cover in the Museum vaterlandischer Altertumer at Stuttgart. Fig 3: Embroidered velvet-border from a chasuble, ibid. Fig 4: Silk-embroidery in applique work from a chasuble, ibid. Fig 5: Relief-embroidery in gold upon silk from a chasuble, ibid. Figs 6 and 7: Silk-embroideries in applique work upon damask-ground. Fig 8: Carpet-border from a Venetian picture at Verona. Fig 9: Carpet-border from a picture by Paolo Giolfino in the museum, ibid. Fig 10: Carpet-border from a picture by Moroni in the Pinacothec at Munich. Embroidery, either applique or flat work, the latter frequently relief-like, took its motives [motifs] from the same sources as the hitherto treated branches of art, and it also united with the mere ornament proper images, especially in form of medallions. Carpet-weaving, inasmuch as it is not fancy-weaving, but applying geometric or vegetable designs, follows in the main features Byzantine and Oriental examples'. Plate 51 from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]

The Prettiest Doll in the World, July 5, 1870. Creator: Lewis Carroll Featured Print

The Prettiest Doll in the World, July 5, 1870. Creator: Lewis Carroll

The Prettiest Doll in the World, July 5, 1870. The model in this photograph, Alexandra (Xie) Kitchin, posed more than fifty times over eleven years, frequently for images inspired by literature. The title Carroll gave this work is the refrain of the poem "The Lost Doll" by the popular Victorian author Charles Kingsley. It tells of a child's affection for her lost toy, which she finds and dotes on in spite of damage it has suffered. It is unclear whether Xie is meant to recall the girl or her doll, but the emulsion peeling from the edges of the glass negative (which Carroll purposefully retained during printing) frames her obstinance, a visual echo of the dramas played out in childhood imagination
