Antique Italian Julius Caesar Tapestry, Origin: Italy, Circa: 1880 – Here is a beautiful antique tapestry: a late nineteenth century Italian Tapestry, composed with the standards of classical beauty as a guiding light. Harkening back to the preferred aesthetics of the Roman Empire, this masterful tapestry depicts none other than the great Julius Caesar himself, resplendent in a central field replete with Romanesque and Latinate designs and cupids. Not to be missed is the figure of “Fortuna,” Latin for “fortune,” personified, who stand below Caesar as though supporting him. A soft pallet of golds, browns and reds serve to give this tapestry a quiet air of sophistication while at the same time framing the composition in the context of classical design. This gorgeous tapestry is a special piece, with an appealing subject and a mastery of execution.
