Description

A sophisticated painterly use of perspective distinguishes this pictorial English sampler. An idealized rural scene with a thatched cottage nestled in a fertile valley, with white misted hills rising in the distance, also features a windmill, a flock of sheep, haystacks, ducks in a pond, and two female farm workers, one carrying a basket, the other a rake. Stitches used are cross and bullion (the latter for the sheep). A honeysuckle border surrounds the scene. The colors on the front of the original sampler are as crisp as those used in our reproduction.
