Elizabeth Wise (Wrought by...)


Here's Elizabeth Wise, Barbara Ana's fine cross stitch piece designed in the manner of an antique sampler, with the designer projecting herself as 14 year old Elizabeth Wise.
The design has all the hallmarks of a determined and bright young girl struggling with her first artistic work, a sampler, soon to become her most prized possession. The work is signed and dated on completion: wrought by Elisabeth Wise age 14
The basket is the main component, almost overwhelming, as if the young girl had been a little over-enthusiastic and almost run out of fabric, the other elements being tiny and squeezed in the corners.
The woven part of the basket is a solid, geometrical and elaborate design. In total contrast, the flower and fruit overflow freely from the basket, a symbol of abundance and prosperity. The colors too reinforce the contrast, with earthen colors of the basket enlivened by the joyful pastel colors of the fruit and flowers.
The piece is cross stitched on linen, over two threads, with the signature worked in tent stitch, over one thread. The linen (see photo) was hand stained to provide an antique feel.
