Holbein Giles

c.1880 Originally a hand woven silk 17th century pattern depicted as the background to the Baptism of Louis XIV, one of a series of tapestries designed by Le Brun and woven by the Goblanc factories in the c1630. During the refurbishment of Ham House, London by Watts in 1890 Bodley copied the green damask in the Green Closet, a pattern that was then woven in red for the Duke’s Dressing Room (where it remains). The pattern was marketed by the firm as Dysart, after the Earl of Dysart who commissioned the work at Ham.
