CU-609 - Brussels Teniers 18th Century Tapestry
8ft X 6ft 07in
This tapestry depicts a group of peasants some dancing while others play music sit and watch in a pastoral setting. This piece belongs to a set of genre tapestries inspired by the paintings of David Teniers the Younger. During the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries the Brussels workshops produced these Teniers tapestries from cartoons by artists such as Jan van Orley and Augustin Coppens. Featuring genre figures in idealized landscapes they provided a lighthearted contrast to the grander history and mythology tapestries then in vogue for the staterooms of European country houses. 8ft.01in wide x 6ft.07in high
Vacuum your rug frequently and use a vacuum which uses suction and does not have bristles. If possible, set vacuum to low power setting and vacuum the rug up and down and do not use a back-and-forth motion.
If possible, rotate the rug every few years to allow foot traffic to be spread evenly and shade the rug from direct sunlight to avoid fading in areas.
A rug pad is recommended on all surfaces to prevent slipping and stop marking if on floors with grooves or lines. Professional cleaning is recommended every two or three years.
