SIA Inspiration: Isabella ParasolePosted: January 23, 2017
Last challenge, we have an Italian sculptor, and this time, we have an Italian engraver and designer from the same period, courtesy of Jen – Isabella Parasole, the first to publish a manual on lacemaking and embroidery based on her own designs in 1616. I’m including here one of the prints, but you can see more of them here:
Jen picked her because of how modern her designs look, especially with the dark background of the woodcut and the white lace patterns. I already have an idea for this, but I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with. Remember to send your outfits to Jen (firstname.lastname@example.org) by next Monday, January 30th, to be included in the round-up!
