Any printed design that depicts scenes of life and landscapes with accurate reference are classed as pictorial.

Toile de jouy is the standard, well-known textile of this genre, picturing scenes of everyday life and mythical ideals in monochromatic colouring. In tones and derivations of the basic printers palette – red, blue, black or yellow printed over a white or off white ground. Or the reverse, with the colour becoming the ground.
