Late 17th Century Franco-Flemish Verdure Tapestry

About

Tapestries were ubiquitous in the castles and churches of the late medieval and Renaissance eras. At a practical level, they provided a form of insulation and decoration that could be easily transported. In addition, the process of tapestry weaving, where every stitch is placed by hand, enabled the creation of complex figurative images on an enormous scale. This late 17th century Franco-Flemish verdure tapestry, signed RAET, worked in fresh colors, depicting animals in a wooded river landscape with a bird of prey attacking a rabbit in the foreground, within borders with classical figures holding baskets of fruits with architectural niches, fruited garlands, and woodland scenes. This one was purchased from Christie's East, New York, in spring 1987 from the Estate of Arndt Krupp Von Bohlen Und Halbach. This is an excellent example of a late 17th century Franco-Flemish verdure tapestry. It exhibits incredible period details, contains its original border and is in excellent condition given its age. It measures 12.8 x 14.8 ft.
