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.
The same weave draft is seen in the canvas of Venus and Adonis but only in the warp direction; the weft: the way the textile is woven, is different
Venus and Adonis
my analyses of this image of the painting revealed that the pattern is woven on an M W threading and is therefore not an (as published in the National Gallery Technical Bulletin Volume 36…)“unusual chevron twill weave or a wide herringbone but with little zigzag at the end of the ‘spine’ “
weave draft of both canvases
handwoven reconstruction of the canvases of Isabella d’Este Titian, and Venus and Adonis, Titian’s workshop. The weave draft and threadcount of both canvases are the same so I could weave them on the same warp.
