17th Century French Aubusson Tapestry

  • H: 300 cm (118 1/8")
  • W: 400 cm (157 1/2")

Wonderful 17th Century Aubusson landscape tapestry featuring a paradisiacal vision of a country house and gardens.

Aubusson Verdure tapestries originated from workshops set up between the towns of Clermont- Ferrand, and Limoges in France. 

In the 17th and 18th centuries, Aubusson successfully rivaled Gobelins and Beauvais tapestry.

They generally relied upon engravings, with their most famous tapestries decorated with illustrations drawn from the fables of French poet Jean de La Fontaine. Figures are set against a background of 'verdure' in Aubusson tapestries. 

This is a particularly good example of Aubusson tapestry work as it depicts a large country house and gardens that are surrounded by various trees, flowers, and exotic birds. 

The whole is enclosed within a scrolling border of foliage. 

A truly fantastic wall hanging that would suit both classic and contemporary interiors.
