About this artwork

Anna Maria Garthwaite is one of only a handful of 18th-century designers of woven silks whose names we know today. Her carefully annotated drawings reveal her intimate understanding of weaving technology, though we know little of how she became a professional designer. Her naturalistic and delicate floral fabrics have come to epitomize English taste of the mid-18th century.
