de Young Saturday Lecture, ‘Very Full of Work’: Patterns of Printed Textile Scholarship

When Philadelphians such as the Wisters ordered fashionable printed cottons in the mid-eighteenth century, they demanded that patterns be “Very full of Work.” An identical description might apply to the efforts of those who save and share those same textiles, including Francis du Pont, as well as Julia Brenner, whose collection is the subject of an upcoming exhibition at the de Young. They were part of a national trend to save and share these important textiles, with both their beauty and complicated history.

Join Dr. Laura Johnson, the Linda Eaton Associate Curator of Textiles at the Winterthur Museum, for this illustrated talk highlighting the history of printed textiles and those who studied, made, and consumed them from the eighteenth century to the present day.
