Dollhouse Miniature Wall hangings "Pink Lady" and "Blue Boy"


Dear friends,

Today I would like to present you another 2 patterns/kits from my Classic Collection. They are: "Pink Lady" and "Blue Boy"


The design for a dollhouse wall hanging petit point pattern "Pink Lady" was adopted after one of the famous paintings by Thomas Lawrence, known as "Pinkie", 1794. The original is in the permanent collection of the Huntington Library at San Marino, California. The painting is an elegant depiction of Sarah Barrett Moulton, who was about eleven years old when painted.


44 x 71 stitches

17 colors

The finished size is 0.90" x 1.45" (2,28 x 3,68 cm) if stitched on 49 count silk gauze

The background doesn't require stitching

The design for a dollhouse wall hanging petit point pattern "Blue Boy" was adopted after one of the famous paintings by Thomas Gainsborough.


35 x 81 stitches

14 colors

The finished size is 0.71" x 1.65" (1,81 x 4,208 cm) if stitched on 49 count silk gauze

The background doesn't require stitching

In spite of the fact, that both portraits are often paired together, the two were created by different painters a quarter century apart, and the subjects' dress styles are separated by over one hundred fifty years. Jonathan Buttall, who posed for Gainsborough's portrait, wears a period costume of the early 17th century as an homage to Flemish Baroque painter Anthony van Dyck, whom Gainsborough held in particular esteem. Sarah Moulton wears the contemporary fashion of 1794.

Both designs, that have been adopted and charted by me, are available at my webstore www.dollhouseneedlepoint.com as PDF patterns and kits as well.

Fabulous work once again, Natalia! All of the colors are just amazing. I would have thought they were originally painted by the same artist as they do fit so well together. Thanks for sharing!
Hugs,
Lisa

And I've always thought a "Pink Lady" is a special variety of apples I can buy at the supermarket... *grin* Okay, bad joke, back to being serious: Although they have different painters and therefore different backgrounds they make a perfect pair together. You transfered them into fantastic miniatures.
