Sitsen sprei met het wapen van Amsterdam, gestikt en groen gevoerd
About the work
This bedspread uses a chintz style of block printed or painted cotton fabric originally from Golcanda, modern-day Hyderabad. Chintz found popularity in Europe as early as Vasco da Gama's preliminary voyages to the region in the late 15th century. Incorporating a coat of arms demonstrates the reach of European values and the authority of the Dutch East India Company over textile production in India and the region.
