Serena, Raffaella:

Publisher: Woodbridge, Antique Collectors Club, 1998.
208pp with 200 colour plates and 35 line drawings. The recent discovery of the Nowotny collection in Vienna has revealed an outstanding collection which is unique both in the quantity of patterns which have come to light as well as in their extraordinary quality. Such a collection provides a significant history in itself of some of the most refined and elegant creations of the nineteenth century. This is the first book devoted entirely to the petit-point of Vienna of this era. Raffaella Serena surveys samplers, motifs, and decorative patterns such as garlands, flowers, animals and landscapes. The collection are integrated with other examples drawn from different sources in order to give a fuller and more complete historical and stylistic account of the Biedermeier period which was then at the peak of its influence. The patterns are considered in the light of the artistic and social milieux which gave them their unique character.In addition to the outstanding colour photographs, new black and white patterns based on the original embroideries will enable today’s needlework practitioners to copy these historic designs.Raffaella Serena brings to her subject an infectious enthusiasm for this frequently undervalued but fascinating branch of the decorative arts..
