This graphically stunning black background canvaswork picture is typical of floral needlework pictures popular in mid-18th century. Worked by young ladies attending academies, this example is likely from New England. It would have been brought home and proudly displayed by the makers' parents in the parlor or another formal room.

Wool and silk on linen canvas; 18 ½" x 16 ½" in the period frame.
