An Exhibition at the Burlington Fine Arts Club 1914: A Celebration and Commemoration.

Ann French uses selected embroideries from the 1914 pioneering embroidery exhibition at the Burlington Fine Arts Club in London, to trace their individual collecting histories and to reveal the different contexts, interpretations and values placed on them within UK based collections and museums. The exhibition, which drew on the leading collections of the day, primarily those of the archaeologists, R M Dawkins and A J B Wace, presented traditional Greek embroidery as an art form for the first time in Britain.
