Fashion & Virtue: Textile Patterns and the Print Revolution, 1520-1620

Visit Website
Description Discusses the Met's extensive collection of Renaissanc e textile pattern books, used primarily by women to embroider clothes and accessorie s. The practice of embroidery was seen as a virtuous endeavor, and textile pattern books, published with great frequency from the 1520s onward, were designed to inspire, instruct, and encourage ''beautifu l and virtuous women'' in this esteemed practice. Straddling the discipline s of early printmakin g, ornament design, and textile decoration , these works help shed light on the crucial period when the concept of fashion as a means of distinguis hing individual identity became fixed in Western society.
