Commentary

""Bizarre silks are a style of figured silk fabrics popular in Europe in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. They are characterized by large-scale, asymmetrical patterns featuring geometrical shapes and stylized leaves and flowers. The name "bizarre silk" reflects the bold colors and lavish use of textured gold and silver threads as well as the distinctive elongated asymmetrical patterns of silk fabrics woven in France, Italy and Britain from about 1695 to 1720.
