Stephen & Carol Huber: 17th - 19th Century Needlework

“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
