Rachael Kane , Lois F. McNeil Fellow, Winterthur Threads of Change: Assessing a Potential Meiji-Era Silk-work Painting
What can a large, silk-work picture gifted by the Delaware Art Museum to Winterthur reveal about the political intrigue of Meiji-era Japan, the rapid internationalization sparked by the World’s Fair system, and the multinational history of embroidery? The quality of thread, stitch shape, and paper types along with in situ Japanese newsprint found in the back of the frame together offer myriad avenues of study and broaden our understanding of the potential provenance of embroidered material culture objects.
