Shepherdess embroidery from Huber

America or England c.1815
Silk Embroidery

Depicting a young lady in a bucolic setting was a popular theme and an artistic way to convey tranquility. This graphically dynamic example with a large central figure of a shepherdess caressing a lamb is particularly pleasing. The quality, complexity, and workmanship is outstanding and unusual; normally much of the background is painted and not covered with stitching. The face and hair are professionally drawn and painted with great skill.

Silk, ink and paint on silk; 25 ¼ x 22 ¼ inches framed.
