Opus Anglicanum - The Evelyn Thomas Database of Medieval English Embroidery

Visit Website
Description One of the foremost scholars in the field and a lady whose work has provided the foundation for this database was Grace Christie whose monograph A Brief Survey of English Embroidery Dating from the Beginning of the Tenth Century Until the End of the Fourteenth : Together with a Descriptiv e Catalogue of the Surviving Examples : Illustrate d with One Hundred and Sixty Plates and Numerous Drawings in the Text was first published in 1938. Her work is not only a catalogue raisonne of all known pieces of Opus Anglicanum but also an iconograph ic and stylistic analysis of the pieces. Her work excludes the later periods and focuses mainly on the techniques of working which was her particular strength and interest. The aim of our database is to provide an electronic and updated version of Grace Christie's work and to document as many of the later pieces as we could find. As such, the numbers she applied to the works is maintained here and extended for new pieces which she was unaware of. Whereas
