BP Travel Award: Book


Ten works inspired by 17th Century portraiture created after winning the BP Travel Award 2013.  The prize was used to research how lace and textiles were depicted in early 17th century portraiture and come up with new and contemporary answers to this rich and evocative inspiration.

The Lace Trail

Written and published by Sophie Ploeg via Blurb.
Essays on English and Dutch 17th century portraiture, costume and lace history, the ‘making of’  the paintings, and a catalogue section.
Richly illustrated with pictures from the studio, lace, and 17th century portraiture, it serves as the story behind The Lace Trail.
