Floral banyan, Anonymous, c. 1795

h 138cm. More details

This banyan with inset sleeves is made of a glazed cotton, manufactured in Europe. Unlike Indian chintz (hand-painted cotton fabric), in Europe cotton was mostly printed. Delicate floral and foliate motifs against a dark background were a common design in the late 18th century. The banyan is lined with a coarse chequered cotton fabric.
