Artistic designIn art history, the carton (pronounced the French way)
was a drawing on ordinary cardboard, used as life-size design for
the manufacture in an atelier of a valuable tapestry, such as a
gobelin. During the weaving it hung behind the tapestry in the
making, a time-consuming process thus in a creative sense simplified
to 'mechanical' painting-by-numbers.
