Description

Tudor Textiles by Eleri Lynn.

At the Tudor court, textiles were ubiquitous in décor and ceremony. Tapestries, embroideries, carpets and hangings were more highly esteemed than paintings and other forms of decorative art. Indeed, in 16th-century Europe, fine textiles were so costly that they were out of reach for average citizens, and even for many nobles. 

This spectacularly illustrated book tells the story of textiles during the long Tudor century, from the ascendance of Henry VII in 1485 to the death of his granddaughter Elizabeth I in 1603. It places elaborate tapestries, imported carpets and lavish embroidery within the context of religious and political upheavals of the Tudor court as well as the expanding world of global trade, including previously unstudied encounters with the New World. Special attention is paid to the Field of Cloth and Gold, a magnificent two-week festival - unsurpassed display of golden textiles - held in 1520. Five hundred years later, such extraordinary works remain Tudor society's strongest projection of wealth, taste and, ultimately, power.
