The Accolade tapestry
The Accolade tapestry is the sequel to Godspeed and is based on artwork by the Pre-Raphaelite English painter, Edmund Blair-Leighton and it depicts a medieval queen in a white gown embroidered with gold stands at the foot of her throne to knight a victorious warrior.
Edmund Blair Leighton tapestries
Lord Leighton (1853 - 1922) exhibited at the Royal Academy for over forty years but he was never an Academician or an Associate. Strangely, there are no modern scholarly writings dedicated to his work and he is rarely mentioned in books which discuss Victorian art despite the fact that some of his paintings such as God Speed and The Accolade hare among the most recognizable artworks of the Victorian era. (Incidentally, his fascinating London home can be toured - I found it inspiring.)
Like all Edmund Blair Leighton tapestries, this Belgian tapestry is available with or without the border. It is lined with a tunnel for easy wall-hanging - we provide tapestry hanging information with each order.
