This page prominently features and highlights tile art portraits based
on the works and illustrations of “The Complete Costume History” by Auguste
Racinet. The historical portraits shown provide insights into the traditional
ancestry dress, garb, folkwear and costumes of specific era cultures, social
positions or standing. The clothes or national period clothing also reveals
vocations or work performed by the people of the various nationalities of
the era, European and colonial.
Shown too are portraits based on the Quimper-Breton-Faience style along with cultural and historical paintings or depictions in the very appealing Old World style or technique.
Most of the portraits were hand painted by Julia on a single six inch ceramic tile. These tiles can be used or incorporated into a kitchen backsplash tile mural, fireplace, hearth surround accent tiles, bathroom or anywhere decorative tiles are desired.
