Gingham was not only the preserve of fashion, as this image highlights, it was also used in interior design. In this 1760 self portrait by John Hamilton Mortimer, the artist depicts himself sat in a chair loosely covered in red and cream gingham fabric. As it often does when used in dress, the textile adds a rustic charm to the otherwise serious image. #eighteenthcenturyart #eighteenthcentury #eighteenthcenturyfashion #gingham #red #ginghamfabric #cotton #history #fashionhistory #interiordesi... 18th Century Clothing, 19th Century, George Romney, Romantic Paintings, Antique Folk Art
