Paradise Revisited: Three Hundred Years of Samplers and Historic Embroideries

Witney Antiques

Paradise Revisited

A new exhibition catalogue for 2000, from Witney Antiques in England. The theme for the exhibition, and this gorgeous full-color catalogue, is Paradise Revisited, which explores needleworks featuring the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve, and all creatures great and small. Included are some exceptional needleworks including a very rare early 17th century cutwork band sampler, the lower panel depicting Adam and Eve, and the serpent coiling around the Tree of Life. In contrast, there is also an 18th century silk embroidery featuring a shepherdess in an exotic landscape reminiscent of the Garden of Earthly Delights. Approximately fifty pieces are featured.
