Etching Embroidery

Example of etching embroidery. Example of etching embroidery.

Etching embroidery was a style of working that reproduced line engravings. It was also sometimes used with painting. Etching embroidery, also sometimes known as print work, was carried out with fine black silk over a sepia coloured ground material. It was very popular in Europe in the first half of the nineteenth century. Later in the nineteenth century it was mostly used in outline, rather than for filling-in the illustrations.
