La Recolte des Ananas
La Recolte des Ananas tapestry, also known as The Pineapple Harvest, is from a series known as "The Story of the Emperor of China tapestries", which originally included ten separate pieces. It shows the Empress, on the left, gesturing towards the plentiful fruit being harvested, with a pagoda and other buildings in the background. The scene also depicts other tropical fruits and plants, setting the context as Eastern and distinctly non-European. Typical of the "Oriental" style it is believed to have been woven between 1697 and 1705 and commissioned by Louis Alexandre de Bourbon (1678 - 1737), son of Louis XIV, and many of the details on the tapestry would never have been experienced by the artists firsthand. By the 1660's Jesuit missionaries returning from Asia provided these details in the form of engravings, which also created a great deal of public interest in life at the Chinese court. Of the original ten tapestries six can now be seen in the Getty Museum, Los Angeles.
