Description:

A French Aubusson rustic tapestry from the late 17th century, depicting several villagers on either side of a large tree in the right foreground, watching the cargo being unloaded from a large vessel docked by the verdant river bank at left, with the turbulent sea at center, and other ships docked by the riverside cityscape in the left distance. Enclosed by a narrow monochromatic border.  Wool with silk inlay.

This tapestry was probably woven after a design by the French painter Claude-Joseph Vernet (1714-1789), renowned for his Marines, or maybe by his student Charles Grenier de Lacroix also known as Lacroix de Marseille (1700-1782). Their paintings were engraved and served as main source of inspiration for Aubusson workshop’s painters.

Hanging: The tapestry comes ready for hanging, with linen backing and a strip of hook and loop tape at the top end, which can be connected to the opposite side of the supplied hook and loop tape, which could be tacked to your wall. For those who prefer the use of a tapestry rod, we can add the appropriate size loops to accommodate your needs. We now have a large selection of antique tapestry rods available as well, which we can provide detail upon request.
