18th Century French Handwoven Pastoral Verdure Aubusson Tapestry

US$18,000

About

This large and elegant antique tapestry was crafted in Aubusson, France, circa 1760. The colorful wall piece features a country garden scene with goats, architectural elements and a flute player on the left side, all surrounded by foliage, trees and plants. The decorative tapestry is excellent condition commensurate with age and use, with rich colors in the green and yellow palette. Nearly square, the tapestry has the original border with decorative arabesques and is embellished with a new canvas backing. Aubusson, a town on the river Creuse in central France, became a center of tapestry manufacture in the 17th and 18th centuries during the reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV; Aubusson became the source for the aristocracy, hence the typically monumental sizes of Aubusson rugs and tapestries. Employing a method known as "warping" and executed on a low horizontal loom, the weavers of Aubusson were able to create an illusion of depth in their works. Aubusson textiles are also usually identified by their stylized framing motifs and neoclassical themes. Measures: 118" W x 111" H.
