Over a period of two and a half centuries, tastes and patterns of consumption altered, and these changes, which can be traced through documentary sources, are reflected in the paintings. The conclusion of this impressive analysis brings the discussion full circle by looking at the reincarnation, during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, of silk patterns taken from late-medieval and renaissance paintings, reproduced as wallpapers or woven as new fabrics (some of which are still in production today). This important and desirable book - beautifully illustrated with many unfamiliar paintings and with surviving fabrics, some of which have never been reproduced before - not only re-evaluates the dating and identification of individual textiles, but also brings fresh insights into the material values of the artists and their clients. Its authoritative and original approach to both fabrics and paintings makes it of inestimable value to historians of textiles, art and material culture alike
