Drawing, Design for Woven Paisley
This is a Drawing. We acquired it in 1909. Its medium is brush and orange-pink gouache on brown oiled translucent paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
Pattern drawers would first draft their paisley designs onto plain paper, usually in gouache. The pattern would then be transferred onto point paper, a type of specialized graph paper for planning weaving drafts, before being turned over for production.
