Victoria Crowe Tapestry Unveiling - Richer Twilight, Venice - Dovecot Studio09 Oct 2019
Marking this significant year in her career, Dovecot Studios have worked with Victoria Crowe to create a new tapestry inspired by a detail from her painting, Twilight, Venice, 2014. Like many of Victoria's Venetian paintings, Twilight Venice features rich colours of a jewellike quality that reflect the intangible preciousness of the city. Engaging with the textural complexity of the painting, Dovecot Master Weavers David Cochrane and Naomi Robertson, and Dovecot weaver Rudi Richardson have created a sumptuous interpretation of the work that captures the tones and shades of twilight in a new way.
Dovecot have a long-standing relationship with Crowe, which begun in 2007 with the tapestry Two Views commissioned by the Duke of Buccleuch. Dovecot weavers and the artist have worked on significant projects including an iconic 40-metre tapestry for The Leathersellers' Company, London, and Large Tree Group, which was woven entirely with undyed wool.
The tapestry was cut off the loom on Friday 27th September and is now on display at Dovecot Studios. The tapestry is available to purchase for £75,000.
This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire Victoria's fourth major tapestry. Please contact The Gallery for further information - firstname.lastname@example.org
