Vintage French Tapestry Rug, Origin: France, Circa: Mid 20th Century – Here is a beautiful vintage tapestry – a vintage French tapestry that was woven in that country during the middle years of the twentieth century. Characterized by an alluring composition, this tapestry is an exciting example of the way that mid-century developments in the art world translated into decorative items. This impeccably styled vintage mid-century tapestry showcases a contemporary landscape scene with colorful birds and dramatic plants rendered in a graphic style. Willowy poly-chromatic grasses emphasize the interplay between light and shadow while creating a lively foreground that is strewn with ornamental flowers, dramatic taro leaves and flamboyant birds. Colorful accents and strong value shadows capture the slithery swishing texture of the lithe grasses and the rough, rugged bark that covers the gnarled trees. This outstanding vintage French tapestry has a fantastic contemporary style that is artful, beautifully drawn and pleasantly different from the classical baroque pieces that French tapestry manufacturers are recognized for. A beautiful example, this antique tapestry from France is an alluring and exciting mid-century piece.
