Isabella d’Este (1536)
Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna
Titian has painted Isabella d’Este on a canvas with a pattern. The painting is located in The Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna
Weave draft of the pattern of the canvas. Reconstruction in progress.
The same weave draft is seen in the canvas of Venus and Adonis but only in the warp draft ; the weft: the way the textile is woven, is different (compare lower right corners)
Venus and Adonis
…analyses of this image of the painting revealed that the pattern is woven on an M W threading and is therefore not an “unusual chevron twill weave or a wide herringbone but with little zigzag at the end of the ‘spine’ as published in the National Gallery Technical Bulletin Volume 36…
weave draft of both canvases
I will soon weave a reconstruction of these canvases, the threadcount is the same for both so I can weave them on the same warp, reconstruction in progress.
