Textile Remnant "Wilton Toile"

2001.281.1215.1-.3 (RS235108)

Description

Three textile fragments, each with four attached colorways and one attached paper label, represents a repeated scene. It is a pastoral and bucolic scene staging two main groups of people: a woman and a man seated next to a child an in front of a barn-like hut with a bull inside and chickens nearby. Next to the hut, several people are picking fruit from a tree and gathering them into a basket; one boy is up in the tree branches with arms and legs outstretched. Far off, people are working in the fields. Light brown, light yellow and peacock blue are the dominant colors. Two colorways: yellow (2) [2001.281.1215.1-.2], and purple/orchid (1) [2001.281.1215.3].\n
