18th Century French Handwoven Aubusson Verdure Tapestry with Fishermen

$18,000

About

This elegant and large antique tapestry was woven in the town of Aubusson, France, circa 1760. The rectangular landscape scene depicts fishermen working their nets collecting fish and mussels off the water. A beautiful array of blue, green and red hues fill this tapestry and are balanced across the wide, horizontal landscape. The foreground and middle ground are filled with figures and foliage, and the background shows a Classic French chateau behind the water and boats. A thin fabric border surrounds this piece and a new backing has been added recently to help maintain its excellent condition. Aubusson, a town on the river Creuse in central France, became a centre 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: 27" W x 89" H.
