Flemish Velvet, Blue

Reference : 103-20-0001

Our reconstruction of a Flemish Velvet from the turn of 17th century.

The silk fabric is decorated with small black flowers in imitation velvet. Interesting is the precision and fineness in the ornamentation, which was an exception in this period. Esthetic principles of art were visible also on pompous baroque clothes and on baroque motives of textiles. Motives of flowers were very popular in the baroque Period. Millefleur which translated from French means thousands of flowers, was a particularly popular style in Flanders. These were small detailed bouquets and flowers, which are visible also on our velvet.

The original of this textile is probably a part of a chasuble. Its fragments are nowadays on display in Musée de Cluny in France and in Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
