Shahsevan Horse Cover

c. 1900
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

This lively horse cover draws rows of parading animals across madder red and indigo blue stripes. Several varieties of birds, including peacocks as well as more ambiguous quadrupeds, are festively drawn throughout. High contrast is achieved through copious highlights with cotton white and fewer but strategic flourishes of metallic thread.
