Gray Pinstripe Linen's deep, dark almost-black swept across James Abbott McNeill Whistler's enigmatic 'Nocturnes', capturing the quiet magic of cities descending into night. Made throughout the 1870s, Whistler's night-time scenes portray urban scenes almost entirely cloaked by darkness, leaving only a smattering of twinkling lights or far-off fireworks in view.
Painted from memory in his studio, they were all feeling and sensation, drawing us in to a mystical, imaginative world of his own making. He wrote, "By using the word 'nocturne' I wished to indicate an artistic interest alone, divesting the picture of any outside anecdotal interest which might have been otherwise attached to it. A nocturne is an arrangement of line, form, and color first."

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces, this 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.
