Antique Aubusson Pictorial Tapestry – Boar Hunt Scenery – Approx 2.5x2m (9x7ft) Neutral complexion on black base

Antique Aubusson pictorial tapestry handwoven in France and depicting a boar hunt amongst classic scenery. The artwork bears the woven signature of the city of origin together with the tapestry mark. Magnificent detail has been employed in the depiction of the animals and the noble folk and their household staff, on a backdrop of countryside greenery (verdure in French). The neutral complexion of this antique Aubusson pictorial tapestry on black base lends itself well to amplifying the colourful array of autumn foliage and fair skin of the characters and their colourful dress.
