About

77209, Late 19th Century Antique Flemish Mythological Tapestry, Medieval Baroque Wall Hanging. Baroque charm and neoclassical style collide in this late 19th century antique Flemish Mythological tapestry. In a bucolic scene of the French countryside, two figures mingle in the foreground beneath a tree and surrounded by shrubbery. The female figures wear Greek robes and sandals. One carries a spear in her left hand while a swag of her robe billows up behind her. The other looks on meanwhile a tall dog stands beside them. Beyond the figures on a hill in the background, a tree-lined road runs off into the distance. Lush natural beauty in an asymmetrical yet balanced composition create an organic scene with movement and vitality. Leafy branches grow above a verdant landscape in shades of sage, olive, verdigris, and cerulean. In the chocolate color border border, what appears to be a signature with the letters "D + W" or "DtW" appears above a German and/or Prussian Coat of Arms composed of an eagle with spread wings. The crest could possibly be in reference Deutsche Wappenrolle or even relating to the marriage of Friedrich (Wilhelm) Viktor Albert von Hohenzollern and Agusta (Dona) Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein.
