Description

Internationally Known Lorraine Wiegman Sprague created this Hauntingly Beautiful Impressionistic Portrait of two little girls one holding a cat or kitten, with what appears to be a teardrop from her right eye making its way to her cheek. The other younger girl holds a flower. The impression I get is that they are sisters and they are sad. The loss of a pet perhaps or someone they knew. This is a Batik on muslin and it comes off as being a little on the Dark side, sadness usually is. "

"The Sunlight streams through this work of art giving and gave a stained glass effect to the fabric". So states the Pittsburgh Post Gazette on April 23rd, 1963, speaking on batiks the reporter saw back then by the artist. The article is about Lorraine Wiegman Sprague creating her Batiks as well as other information on this very gifted woman.

The article goes on to say that the hangings have no right and wrong side but look equally well from either side, as the light shines equally well from either side. The hangings were part of the Craftsman's Guild and the Weaver's Guild Exhibition in Pittsburgh. The artist was Secretary of the Sculptors Society in Pittsburgh and she taught more design than painting. Mrs Sprague was a Carnegie Tech graduate with a degree in Art Education.

She used muslin rather than silk, (she explains that the Japanese generally use silk) and covers portions of the fabric with hot wax-actually paraffin, though she prefers beeswax. Wax covers the part of the fabric that resists color when the muslin is dipped in dye but there is more to it than that.

There are many demonstrations of the process online also the definition itself helps in understanding it. When I found this article I felt it would at least give an idea of the process that goes into each work of art. Just let the pictures be your guide and I feel sure you won't be disappointed. The frame is wood and the artwork for its size is light. . The wire for hanging the picture shows in some of the window pictures.

The bottom of cloth shows some slight wear on right side bottom and the batik billows out some. Not to worry it it isn't loose or torn, but wanted to mention it. Thank you for visiting VeiledThroughTime, we do appreciate it.
