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.
Made from natural grass backed with non-woven paper, this luminous substrate makes truly spectacular walling. Catching the light in its subtly linear organic texture, our Grasscloth illuminates the Tableau Scénique design from within. Fully compliant with fire regulation requirements, this substrate is a great choice for contract walling.
