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.
Rich colours dance across the non-woven paper’s smooth surface. Durable and easy to install, this substrate conveys the details and subtleties of the design. Fully compliant with fire regulation requirements, this substrate is a great choice for contract walling.
