“English and Other Needlework, Tapestries and Textiles in the Irwin Untermyer Collection”
By Yvonne Hackenbroch.
Published by the Harvard University Press in 1950.
DISCUSSION: Quality and diversity were the hallmarks of the Untermyer Collection of needlework, which was so extensive
that it provided a survey of English and European textiles from 1300 to the 18th century. Every piece is illustrated
and described, and the text also provides a detailed and scholarly study of the sources of needlework designs through
a variety of period woodcuts, engravings and paintings.
DESCRIPTION: Hardcover. 9.5"x12", 161 pages of text plus 75 color and 108 black & white plates
