Drawing, Design for Woven Shawl with Paisley Motif

This is a Drawing. We acquired it in 1924. Its medium is brush and gouache on brown oiled translucent paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

One motif employed by European designers to imitate Kashmiri originals is the coif boteh, a main cone accompanied by an independent floral stem arching over it, called a raceme.

This object was donated by Sarah Cooper Hewitt and Eleanor Garnier Hewitt.
