Going for Baroque?

French Baroque Silk Damask Textile

2.1 by 5.2

17th Century

Going for Baroque? Everything is dramatic. Think Caravaggesque paintings. Sculpturesque carved furniture. Everything is designed to impress. This textile, originally a section of a longer bolt, displays more than one repeat of a bold, complex cartouche and acanthus pattern in yellow-ochre and raspberry-red. The twisting foliage makes it three dimensional. What a great wall piece! You don’t have to be fluent in art history or in the language of period decoration to appreciate this eye-catching object. It is a full loom width and in good condition. And the furnishing context can be modern. Think of it as another piece of wall candy, like an abstract painting.
