18th Century Flemish Verdure Tapestry

US$40,000

About

A large Flemish verdure tapestry from the 18th century, featuring a tranquil scene in a woodland setting, with stately trees at right and left in the foreground, with an exotic bird resting in the grass beneath their shadow, and further trees in some grassy knolls in the middle distance and background. Enclosed within a scrolling foliate border. Wool with silk inlay. Complete with backing. Tapestries make integral part of the Flemish cultural heritage. Most of the tapestries have religious, mythological and historical subjects as well as hunting and harvest scenes. They are known for their high quality and extended use of colors. The oldest ones were made in the 13th century. The most important production centers were Doornik and Arras. These two centers got a lot of assignments of the Dukes of Burgundy. In the 14th century tapestries were also made in Bruges, Oudenaarde and Ghent. In the 16th century Brussels and Antwerp became important. Antwerp was also the distribution centre for the rest of Europe. In the 17th century the popularity faded and in the 18th century the making of tapestries in Flanders stopped. Measures: 9'10 wide x 7'3'' high.
