1624, an Aubusson Tapestry. Permanent collection of the museum of the Cité Internationale de la Tapisserie Aubusson, France.
Originally woven to commemorate the marriage of Henri-Victor de Cardaillac and Élisabeth de Pluvinel in 1624, Cardaillac recalls 17th Century Dutch Still Life paintings. Stately bouquets, each a different arrangement of carnations, lilies, roses and arums, are arranged in unique vases upon a striking plain ground.
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.
