Tapestry, Origin: France, Circa: Mid 20th Century – Created in Aubusson by the legendary Pinton Freres atelier, this art deco French Tapestry — Mid Summer Dance — is a cubist masterpiece that captures the distinctive style of Lars Gynning. Borrowing from European mythology and folklore, this modern tapestry expertly combines classical design elements with cubist influences to create a perfect marriage of old and new. Like neoclassical tapestries, this mid-century creation features an expansive composition with people, animals and grandiose landscape features that are infused with Gynning’s unique style. Exuberant dancers revel around towering May poles in a festive summer solstice celebration, as choreographed by the artist. Gynning’s strong cubist style adds textural patterns and decorative geometric shapes to each colorful dancer, seagull and grassy ledge. Jagged blue outlines rendered in Gynning’s signature color define the edge of each geometric cubist figure while adding an immense level of detail to each hand-woven design.
