Needlework in art

Several people wrote to find out more information about the picture I showed in yesterday’s blog post. The name Madeline LeMaire is in the lower right corner. I did a little research and found that Madeline was a French painter and illustrator. She was born in 1845 and died in 1928. My print was made from her painting, An Afternoon Embroidering.

Also in Carolyn’s room is a small picture of Madame Pompadour at her tambour frame. It is actually a greeting card I bought at the National Gallery of Art in London. This is available for online purchase in several formats here. The framed card looks wonderful in Carolyn’s room.
