Gift of Mrs. Donald V. NIcholson

Dept. binder notes: The mid and dark value neutrals are a very dull green, which was resist printed over a dull yellow or discharge printed to lighten the yellow, keeping the dyed ground dark. A silver substance was rubbed onto the weft yarns which are twice as thick as the warp. The silver metallic paste has tarnished creating the antique look Fortuny like in his textiles.(VB)
