Jean Lurcat Aubusson Tapestry

US$15,500

About

Mid-Century tapestry designed by Jean Lurcat and woven at Atelier Suzanne Goubely-Gatien in Aubusson, France. Hand woven in wool, it dates to the 1950s and entitled "Bahia La Rouge". The artist's name and the monogram for the atelier are woven in the lower left corner. Inspired by an encounter with one of the largest surviving tapestries from the Middle Ages, the Apocalypse d’Angers, Jean Lurçat stirred his French colleagues to Revive the spirit of tapestry weaving as an art form during the late 1930s. By 1939, with a new and bold visual vocabulary, Lurçat was making cartoons solely meant for the production of tapestry on hand-operated looms in tradition techniques. His single-handed reform of tapestry production during this time centered on bringing the art back to its medieval traditions by drawing on tapestry as a medium in and of itself. Lurçat did not strive to paint with wool, but rather incorporated the limited palette and strong compositional lines of tapestry weaving into his pictures.
