Beth Russell Needlepoint - Henry Dearle Greenery Collection - Henry Dearle Complete Tapestry

Complete kit with threads

Canvas: #14 Zweigart Antique deluxe canvas 69x30"

Henry Dearle, Morris' first weaving apprentice, became a talented designer in his own right and on William Morris' death in 1896 he took over Morris & Co. So close was he to Morris in style that many of his designs for wallpapers and fabrics have been mistaken for Morris' own.

However, it was in tapestry that he revealed his greatest talent and here his work is quite distinctive. Greenery is one of his finest works. The original Greenery tapestry was completed in 1892. It is now in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. A second weaving was completed in 1915 and is in the Metropolitan Museum, New York. Beth Russell Needlepoint has adapted the very large weaving into needlepoint and divided it into parts, which she has named for convenience (see related items below). Each of these would make a hansome firescreen or wall hanging. Sewn together the entire scene is magnificent. For those of you who would rather avoid the inconvenience of sewing them together this is Beth's newest version with all three together on one canvas.
