1786 Mourning Needlework / Art

November 5, 2010

1786 Mourning NeedleworkIn this piece from 1786, there the powerful image of the urn and the strength of neoclassical art. It’s age declares it as piece which has little precedence, whereas a piece from ten years later has more ground to build upon, from an aesthetic standpoint. The depiction of the tree and the shading to the urn is incorporates some remarkable stitching as it is organic enough to be considered a drawing rather than stitching.
