Sammanfattning

The use of Woad in Sweden During the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century – An Overwiew of the Written Historic Sources The dye indigotin, derived from woad, Isatis tinctoria, has in Europe historically been used for the blue coloration of textiles and as a blue organic pigment in paintings. In Sweden indigotin has been found in medieval tapestries as well as in art and folk art from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Woad was traditionally provided the blue color for the Swedish flag and the Swedish military Caroleans uniforms. Indigotin from woad can therefore be expected to be found in other historic objects and artifacts from Sweden. International literature mainly describes the history of woad from a central European perspective and the Nordic countries are often left aside. Therefore, the purpose of this source overview is to briefly define the Swedish historic texts that describe the use of woad during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The texts from this period has a mercantile perspective, socio-economic inventories and administrative provisions aimed to creating national self-sufficiency of domestic natural resources. The texts during this period can also be various manuals with cultivation advice, as well as handbooks with recipes for paint manufacturing or textile dyeing at home. The overview provides a basis of knowledge and can be used as a help to formulate new research questions in technical art history about woad dye and pigment, their meaning and their use.
