Stylised floral motifs and graceful birds adorned much table linen in the first quarter of the 20th century. During this period, Dutch linen weaveries invited artists to design damask patterns in this style, known as Art Nouveau or Jugendstil. Damask is often woven in a single colour, white. The subtle, delicate patterns are only revealed when the fabric is viewed from the correct angle. Chris Lebeau gained recognition at that time for his more than 60 eye-catching damask designs. The TextielMuseum made a selection from a series of beautiful damasks, woven in Art Nouveau style in the early 20th century, and presents them from 17 January in the exhibition Art Nouveau damask.
