Description

Cotton fabrics printed with pictorial scenes are commonly called toile de Jouy, named for the well-regarded factory established by Christophe Oberkampf (Swiss, 1738 1815) in 1760 at Jouy-en-Josas near Paris. Printed using engraved copperplates, these pictorial cottons featured fine details but were limited to one color. The designs depicted a range of subjects from floral or chinoiserie styles to political topics to genre scenes to mythological tales, fables, and popular literature. The beautifully detailed pattern on our tea towels is adapted from Tomb of Rousseau, a fanciful French toile (ca. 1800) in the Museums collection.

Includes 2 tea towels. Cotton. Machine washable. Imported. 29''L x 17''W.
