18th Century French Tapestry 50717
18th Century French Tapestry 50717, Country of Origin / Rug Type: French Rugs, Circa Date: 18th Century – Like so many other exquisite French tapestries, this one combines gentle and subtle colors with clear points of highlighting and shading to create a striking image, not unlike the presentation of a painting. In this piece, a young man is bedridden, attended by a physician dressed in beautiful blue robes. A beautifully decorated gold curtain hangs above them, implying that the two gentlemen are set in a lavish estate. Richness seems to glow from every detail in the antique masterpiece, from the wonderfully rendered floor to the furniture painstakingly arranged around the two main figures at the heart of the tapestry.
