…I could not be more grateful for coming accros this interesting lecture by Anna Forrest and The Warburg Institute from december 2020.
Textile finds are part of these discoveries.
At the Warburg Youtube page is written: “Anna Forrest (National Trust) examines how the recent discoveries at Oxburgh Hall shed light on the vibrant material culture of recusant Catholics at a time of persecution. As the Oxburgh Hall project is still in its early stages, this lecture presents a key opportunity to discover how curators go about analysing objects, and start to formulate conclusions, while a project is still evolving. Dr Tessa Murdoch from the Victoria and Albert Museum acts as respondent for this event.
Titian’s painting “The Supper at Emmaus” shows a tablecloth with a pattern.
In both analyses we only see the lines, I hope to receive higher quality pictures to analyse the textile piece that has been found recently in The Oxburgh Hall. An amazing story !!!
