Description

Pattern in paintings is the theme for this address book. It features a variety of intricate patterns taken from masterpieces in the collection of The National Gallery in London, shown in close-up detail - including elaborate tapestries, embroidered robes, ornamented walls and furniture. One of The National Gallery's earliest Italian paintings, "The Virgin and Child Enthroned" by Margarito of Arezzo, for example, provides an array of patterns in jewel-like colours, from gilded crimson folds of drapery to delicately entwined flower borders. There are captions providing information about the paintings, all of which are reproduced in full alongside the details. The book has a tabbed index.show more
