Tapestry

Circa: 1650

A Brussels Late 17th Century Tapestry. Woven in wools depicting a young girl sitting in a garden setting. In the architectural style the elaborate carved columns lead to a formal sunken garden. In the background trees and mountains are in view. With the decline of Arras and Tournai at the beginning of the 16th century Brussels which had a well-established tradition became the undisputed center of tapestry weaving. Among its important patrons was Pope Leo X. The most important patron however was Emperor Charles V (Charles I of Spain) who from 1519 ruled Flanders as part of his vast scattered kingdom. 5ft.07in wide x 6ft.06in high
