This tapestry is the second of a group (currently seven pieces) based on fashion press photographs originally stimulated by the 'Devonshire Hunting Tapestries' at the V&A museum, around the concept of weaving the illusion/reality of cloth and clothing already woven. The origin picture, all readjusted by the 'Scotsman' newspaper circa 1970. It being a fashion photograph, I am intrigued that although the tapestry does not change our seeing it and attitude may change over years as fashion changes and reverts. The title 'at the window' also refers to an overlapping series, also the second in the series, of windows and curtains this series currently five pieces.
