Linen plays a central role in the history of art with Artists drawing on linen, literally as a medium and for inspiration. As Artists look for quality linen on which to paint, so Traders have looked to ensure quality in the materials they exchange and Consumers have looked for quality in the linen goods they purchase. Here we look at woven research into the canvas of old master paintings, images of linen product, production and advertising and the graphic design of quality through the ages.
Art and Acquisition is developed in collaboration with Eilidh Young.
