AN EXQUISITE FRENCH GOBLEN TAPESTRY, 19th century.
This charming small landscape tapestry depicts a vernal woodland scene with a pair of courting birds, the cock in the central foreground between a luxuriant flowering shrub on the left and the tree in blossom on the right, in the hen is perched. Lovely forest flowers and plants are ranged along the base of the foreground, while a village is glimpsed on the far banks of a lake in the background, a plain cream skyline behind. This delightful vista is expressed in delicately light pastel venture colours, with some dark brown area of shade in the foreground in contrast to this soft tonality, the lovely border of the country flowers is detailed in slightly richer and more overtly multi-coloured shades, including crimson, yellow, grey, pink, cerise and soft green. Ornate fleur-de-lys embellish each corner of this frame.
From a renowned Jewish collector
