The Fine Art of Textiles: The Collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art

The Fine Art of Textiles

Nearly four hundred textiles from East and West are reproduced in full color in this handbook of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's encyclopedic collections, which cover a broad range of geographic areas, periods, and techniques.  Europe and the Americas are represented by woven textiles, printed textiles, embroidery, lace, samplers, quilts, and coverlets.  Each chapter is introduced by a brief history of that particular aspect of the museum's collections, placing it within the context of textile scholarship and collecting in the United States and Europe.
