THE LADY AND THE CASTLE IN AN AUTUMN LANDSCAPE circa 1700
This canvaswork picture is designed after an English tent stitch piece, illustrating a transition between the needlework styles and conventions of the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Although undated, the clothing style depicted is clearly more of the period of William and Mary than James. Romantic or mythical pastoral scenes, such as this, were very popular in early eighteenth century pictorial canvasworks.
