Caption

Irish linen industry. 18th-century artwork of workers in a lapping room measuring and folding (right, tables), and binding (left, lever) linen cloth into lengths (laps). Linen is a textile made from fibres of the flax plant. The bound linen rolls will be sold at the Linen Hall in Dublin, Ireland. This painting is by the Irish-born artist William Hincks (active 1773-1797), and was dedicated to Lord Viscount Kingsborough. It forms part of a series of 12 paintings that Hincks did on the production and manufacture of linen, with the illustrations first published in London in 1782. This copy is from the set republished in 1791 by R. Pollard.
