|Dear members,||Rheinfelden, February 12th, 2001|
|Contributors to this Newsletter
are: Karen Finch, Marianne Gächter, Daniela Lunghi,
Margaret Ribbert, Gudrun Sporbeck, Monica Vroon. Thank
you all very much for your interesting information.
A new problem arose this time: some of the exhibitions announced by members were alsready finished before my Newsletter was ready. Therefore I started a new section on my homepage, one on exhibitions and one on bookreviews. If you send information to me I will publish it instantly there. Later on you will find these comments also in the Newsletter.
Please contiunue to inform me about chalice veils, and I would be very glad for your opinion about the vocabulary, so far I only had very few comments.
Best wishes yours

Textile Museum St.Gallen
The Textilmuseum acquired in autumn 2000 a table cloth with whitework embroidery (TM 50202) with scenes of the life of Napoleon, this table cloth is very similar to the embroidery published in Newsletter 3, Sept 1996, of V&A Museum London, No Circ 128-1951.

St.Gallen, part of table cloth, whitework embroidery, TM 50202
|A set of the same kind of
embroideries, also with scenes of Napoleon and his army,
was given to the museum shortly. There are: one runner,
12 place mats and 12 napkins (No TM 50317-50330). An
american lady bought these embroideries in Switzerland in
1930. They belong to a group of embroideries which have
been worked in Eastern Switzerland, but it is not clear
when and in which workshop. The museum already has a
table cloth with scenes of Napoleon in its collection,
which probably was made 100 years ago.
In a number of private collections there are embroideries of the same kind with a broad range of different subjects. As for the napoleonic scenes many of them are embroidered after paintings as published in:
- Napoleon. Von Corsica bis St.
Helena. Original-Illustrationen nach berühmten Gemälden
von Meissonnier, David, Vernet, Delaroche, Gerome,
Gérard, Gros und Steuben, Hamburg, o.J.
If any members have similar embroideries in their collections, the Textilmuseum and Anne Wanner are very interested to get every possible information about them.
