The Fabric of Images: European Paintings on Textile Supports in the
14th & 15th Centuries
Proceedings of the International Symposium held on  16 May 1998 at
the Courtauld Institute
Ed. Caroline Villers
Published by Archetype Publications November 2000

Introductory Price: UKP29.50 / $47.50

During the 14th and 15th centuries, painting on textile supports
was carried out side by side with panel paintings all over Europe.
So few works survive that this important aspect of artistic
production has been overlooked, especially in Italy, and the
appearance of these rare paintings is frequently misunderstood.

This volume of essays by conservators and art historians adopts an
interdisciplinary approach to visual and written evidence in order
to reconstruct what can be known about original display, function
and painting technique--defining a new subject area that has
implications for both conservation practice and historical study.
