Description

Framed and under glass, this charming Early Georgian needlework shows a fashionably dressed lady in a garden; she sits, sheltered by trees, apparently not alarmed by the giant insects flying past her! Actually, insects and flowers were nearly always depicted out of scale in this manner.
The colours of this artwork are still remarkably strong, especially as it is nearly 300 years old; clearly previous owners have sensibly kept it out of strong light.
The frame is not of the same period, but is a fine piece of 19th century 'medieval' carving.
SIZE: 13 x 15 inches including the frame.
Needlework size: 7 x 9 inches
PROVENANCE: Private Collection for the last 45 years.
Internal Ref: np
