  Silk Embroidered Pictures: We use this term to refer to early needlework that was embroidered with silk or chenille thread on a silk (not linen, canvas, or cotton) background. Often the silk background not covered with embroidery is painted with watercolors. These were popular c1780 to c1840 and were extremely expensive and difficult to execute. They often depicted classic biblical stories, mythological stories, popular stories of the times, or memorial themes. The faces were often painted by well-known artists of the period, some are known today although many are yet to be identified. In general, privileged young girls attending the finest schools were responsible for these exquisite silk embroidered pictures. We consider this type of needlework to be the highest quality needlework art of the period.
