Le Chateau de L 'Apocalypse
The New Jerusalem tapestry detail is taken from one of the six tapestries forming the Apocalypse Tapestry of Angers. The Chateau of Angers was built during the reign of Louis IX, between 1240 and 1250. We owe the existence of the Angers' Apocalypse Tapestry to Duke Louis of Anjou, the second son of the King of France, John II, known as the Brave. A great lover of beautiful and rare objects like his brother, The Duke of Berry, it was he who commissioned these tapestries to decorate the Great Hall of the Chateau for celebrations and solemn ceremonies. The five tapestry panels were woven between 1377 and 1380 by a Parisian weaver named Nicolas Bataille, from designs made by the King's painter, Hennequin de Bruges, who drew his inspiration from miniatures ornamenting manuscripts, one of which was lent by King Charles V to his brother. This portion of the Apocalyse Tapestry is woven in France, lined and has a tunnel for ease of hanging.
