Description

Tapestries have a rich history dating back to year 732. It has evolved over the centuries and some of the most spectacular pieces were created between the 15th and 17th century. However, post the french revolution, machines replaced most hand-made production. In the early 19th century – the ?cole Nationale des Arts D?coratifs d’Aubusson (Aubusson National School of Decorative Arts) was created and it brought about the must needed revival of tapestry through changes in its technique: the painter simplifies the weaving process by limiting the number of colours, while avoiding excessive gradations. These are some of the original antique tapestries acquired by our founder.
