What is that Flower? Identify Flowers on Early Chintzes

Terry Terrell

Sunday, November 12, 2017, 2:00pm—4:00pm

From the late 1700s textile designers often copied botanical illustrations to create realistic floral patterns for chintz printing. This presentation will demonstrate a system, currently under development, to help people correctly identify flowers on these early textiles. It will feature beautiful examples of flowers on chintz, botanical illustrations of how they appeared at the time the chintzes were made, and pictures of the same flowers growing in modern gardens. Learn how such a system is created and how it could be made available.  Join us to get a peek into the early chintz printers’ sources of designs!
