Chateau Bellevue tapestry

Chateau Bellevue tapestry - French chateaux tapest

The Chateau Bellevue tapestry is part of the series Tapestries of the Royal Households commissioned by Louis XIV in 1670. Designed by Charles Le Brun (1619 - 1690) each of the twelve pieces featured a residence owned by the king and each represented a month of the year. This tapestry shows the view from a balcony in Chateau Bellevue, with courtiers seen riding through the grounds. An extremely prolific artist and designer Le Brun rose to become the King's primary painter and over a 30 year period did more than any other to create the lavish and flamboyant sense of style of the Baroque period associated with the reign of the Sun King, Louis XIV.

This fine French tapestry is woven in wool and cotton and it is lined and has a tunnel for ease of hanging - we provide tapestry hanging information with each order. Note: the largest size is non-returnable
