Antique Flemish Verdure Tapestry Panel, ca. 1700

reference:  6502

This large Flemish Verdure Tapestry panel is dating to about 1700. It is depicting an idyllic rural scene typical of this genre.  Two elegantly drawn dogs are heading for a stream, a building is just visible behind a tree off centre. The composition, including the generously drawn and well spaced trees, and the fresh colours, mainly in tones of blue, green and brown-grey, create an elegant and serene textile.

Tapestry weave in wool and silk. Original height, reduced in width. Backed on old, heavy linen.

Some repairs in keeping with age, overall very good condition
