The Richer Twilight, Venice tapestry, 2019 was created by Dovecot Master Weavers David Cochrane and Naomi Robertson, and Dovecot weaver Rudi Richardson. It is a sumptuous interpretation of Crowe's 2014 painting of the same name.

Dovecot have a long-standing relationship with Crowe, which began 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.
