Please join Linda Eaton, the John L.& Marjorie P. McGraw Director of Collections and Senior Curator of Textiles at Winterthur as she presents "Patterns of Their Time: Design in Printed Textiles" at Brunschwig & Fils, 979 Third Avenue, Suite 1202, at 3 pm on Wednesday, October 15, 2014.
This is Eaton's first lecture event on her newly published book "Printed Textiles: British and American Cottons and Linens, 1700-1850," the acclaimed update of Florence Montgomery's 1970 classic "Printed Textiles."
The late 18th and 19th centuries were the golden age for printed textiles, when the chemistry and technology involved in their creation were at the forefront of the industrial revolution. But design was equally important and was highly valued by manufacturers, merchants, and their clients. Great designs from that period have cycled in and out of fashion for more than two hundred years. They are as relevant today as when they were created, providing contemporary designers with infinite sources of inspiration.
Enjoy this discussion of fabulous textile designs that highlight the extensive Winterthur collection and are featured in Eaton's new book, published by The Monacelli Press.
Please RSVP by October 10 to: events@Brunschwig.com or 212.838.7878.
Refreshments and book signing following Eaton's presentation.
