French Baroque Silk Damask Textile
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.
