"Tapestry Bruges Louis XIV Period"
"Tapestry Of The 17th Century Antwerp Workshops" Exceptional 17th century tapestry, woven in Antwerp (Flanders) The workshops worked mainly for the courts and the nobility of Europe. This exceptional tapestry has retained its freshness. Its register is summer with the harvest and is part of a series of hangings in four panels on the theme of the four seasons. The composition of the cartoon inclines us to suggest that it is probably the work of Jan Wildens (1586-1653). A rich border, made up of flowers and fruits with a small dog at the bottom in the center (a particularity of certain Antwerp workshops), pleasantly enhances the high quality of this tapestry. The structure of the composition of the characters suggests a double interpretation, one mythological with the Goddess Ceres (or Demeter for the Greeks) and her daughter Proserpina (or Persephone for the Greeks), and the other more contemporary at the time of making the tapestry. If the women's dress suggests that the sponsor of this tapestry could be a follower of the rigor demanded by the "Reformed" church, the hat in the hands of one of the characters in the background in the center invites us to believe him. To the left of the panel you can see the reapers working in the fields, mowing and tying the bundles of wheat. Characters of the central scene, on the left the Goddess Cérès dressed in red her tutelary color, in front of her her daughter, Proserpina, lying on the sheaves and a gallant bourgeois in the background, two other young women to whom Cérès presents crowns of wheat, symbol of fertility and fecundity.
