Tapestry Painting

Tapestries have in later years tended to be ancillary to luxury, says one authority. So far as private dwellings are concerned, few people would quarrel with that. No one being now able to run and maintain houses of the dimensions to which his forefathers were accustomed, the walls are no longer large enough.

But in public buildings things could surely be different. Yet the firm, the bank, the trade union, or the town council that would not hesitate to buy modern canvas wall art for the adornment of its main hall would shy away from a modern tapestry.

Once again they would seem to order these things better in France. A move is afoot there to specify that the 1 per cent. of construction costs of new educational buildings which may be spent on decorations may include tapestries. There is, of course, a practical purpose. Politicians can rarely be moved by aesthetic considerations alone. But even though the main aim is to give some succour and stimulus to the French tapestry makers-a long and dis- tinguished line of craftsmen-it is a move in the right direction. Unless it be a Rubens or a Tintoretto any picture on the majestic scale tends to be too poor to hold sustained atten- tion. But it is possible to sit through any number of dinners facing, say, a great medieval tapestry telling the sad tale of Actaeon and Diana and, no matter how entrancing one's companions, to find the work inexhaustibly interesting. There is something in the nature of tapestries themselves that makes for contemplation.

Even a moderate tapestry can go on satisfying after a better picture has used up its good will. As for the masterpieces, such as the great gold-thread tapestry of the fifteenth century, Tlhe Glorification of Clharles VIII, now in America, or The Miraculous Draughit of Fishes on loan to the Victoria and Albert Museum, they rank among the noblest wall art.

Artists as great as RAPHAEL and LEONARDO DA VINCI did not disdain to design for the weavers, and the tapestry which MR. GRAHAM SUTHERLAND is composing for the new Coventry Cathedral will follow in a great tradition. In France M. LURgAT has led a revival, and after the war the French Government in some cases expressed its gratitude to foreign institutions for wartime help by present- ing them with modern French tapestries. This, and the latest move, are welcome signs that a form of art with a history of well over 3,000 years will survive the flatlet age. 

No woven product, not print! 100% hand painted oil on canvas tapestry comes with a striking scroll topper and bottom rod to complete an elegant deor statement.
