77763 Antique French Aubusson Pastoral Tapestry with Louis XV Style 04'05 x 04'08. Drawing inspiration from Jacques-Nicolas Juillard, Jean-Baptiste Huet, and François Boucher, this hand-woven antique French Aubusson pastoral tapestry beautifully embodies Louis XV style. This antique French tapestry depicts a village dance with a musician, dancing couples, a baker with a playful dog, and a couple dining at a picnic table. The village is nicely nestled between a plush forest with large trees. The embellishments alone are sufficiently captivating, but the use of color is extraordinary. Rendered in variegated shades of tan, sand, ecru, gray, pink, mauve, baby blue, olive, moss, peach, brown faded red, rose, coffee, light gray, and camel with other accent colors. The colors join to create a truly compelling dance, and inaudibly speak with a timeless voice that is characterized by sensual decadence, as well as by stately action. All facets of this piece collectively entwine to form the striking and grand charm of a textile that is worthy to depict the tender, emotive, and vibrant details of humans and histories, no longer known. Well-suited for French, Rococo, Louis XIV, Louis XI, Louis XV, Rococo, Chippendale, Regal, Aubusson, Baroque, Renaissance, Old World, Traditional, European, and Savonnerie inspired interiors with Gobelins or Beauvais style. Whether in a formal setting with elaborate furnishings or in an Ottoman style interior, this antique French wall hanging takes on a spirited type of energy, some say “a joie de vivre” meaning to experience the joys of living, loving and playing by getting back to nature. Desirable Age Wear. Abrash. Hand-woven wool. Made in France. Measures: 04'05 x 04'08.
