Les Patineurs - Skating tapestry
Les Patineurs - Skating tapestry is from the Months of Lucas series of tapestries dating from the 18th century. Copied from paintings and cartoons by Gobelins the works are often incorrectly attributed to Dutch artist Lucas van Leyden (1494 - 1533). It is believed they were inspired by the work of a number of artists and in the style of the day "enhanced" by Gobelins own artists and weavers. The scene shows Les Patineurs (the skaters) enjoying a cold afternoon skating on a frozen lake. The tapestry, woven in 1770, is rich in detail and demonstrates the skill of the Gobelins weavers and artists in capturing the colour and ambience of even complex, detailed paintings. The original can now be seen in the Elysee Palace, the residence used by the President of France to welcome foreign dignitaries.
This high quality French tapestry is woven in wool and cotton and it is lined and has a tunnel for ease of hanging. A vertical scene is also available of Les Patineurs - left scene.
