Design Provenance: Mid-late 18th Century. A suite of six Aubusson tapestries, Permanent collection of the museum of the Cité Internationale de la Tapisserie
This suite of six vibrant tapestries was created by Étienne Jeaurat (1699-1789), custodian to the King’s collection of paintings at Versailles. Based on the narrative composed by the Greek poet Longus in the second century A.D., this Tableau Scénique follows the triumphs and tragedies of two young lovers, Daphnis and Chloe.
A gentle, elegant substrate, our linen Tableaux Scéniques make wonderfully relaxed drapery and domestic upholstery. Faithfully conveying the vibrant colourings of the design, our linens retain the graceful and natural variations organic to the textile.
