Ann Flowers Sketchbook

From the Joseph Downs Collection of Manuscripts and Printed Ephemera, Winterthur Library Doc 1244

In the 1760's a young Quaker woman in Philadelphia, Ann Flower (1743-1778), created a sketchbook in which she drew people from life; copied and interpreted published sources of designs; and delineated patterns for needlepoint. Evidence of women's artistic endeavors in the 18th century is exceedingly rare. We hope that this facsimile will provide inspiration and generate new scholarship on this topic.

• Perfect for those who have an interest in early American sketches and needlework designs!

• Paperback: 35 pages with 35 color illustrations.
