…they all have a very similar pattern: a tablecloth, owned by Jan Bustin, a canvas of a painting by Francisco Correia c 1600,(source Rita Maltieira, thesis) and a painted tablecloth “La Cene” tryptique d’Autun, 1515, photograph courtesy of https://www.facebook.com/pages/Musée-Rolin/320952957931371
earlier I wrote:
This story started with finding the thesis ‘A tela na pintura Portuguesa. Materiais e técnicas,do século XV ao século XIX’ by Rita Maltieira.
It was here where I found for the first time that a Portuguese painter had painted on a canvas with a pattern.
After having published this on my Facebook page, I received photographs from a tablecloth with a very similar pattern, that is owned by Jan Bustin, he bought it on a Belgium flee market.
Patricia Hilts has done an amazing work on translating the earliest weaving manual , ‘Weber Kunst und Bild Buch’ by Marx Ziegler (1674)
and has published this in Ars Textrina, volume thirteen, december 1990
Here I found a graphic of a pattern similar to both the 17th century canvas as well as the tablecloth, which led me to the Autun triptych.
