English framed needlework sampler by Jane Hodgson (1822)
Needlework sampler of silk floss on linen in green, brown, and white on a natural linen ground. The work includes the lines: “Like leaves on the trees the race of man is found now green in youth now withering on the ground. Another race following spring supplies they fall successive and successive rise so Generations in their course decay so flourish these when those are past away”. The text is over figures, trees, plants, and animals arranged symmetrically around a house above and gate below a tablet of the maker’s name date and place. The whole piece is surrounded by an intricate scroll work border. Archival mount and framed in a period bird’s-eye maple ogee molding.
