Description
Beautifully illustrated with 138 color plates—some stretching across two large pages—and 159 duotone figures, this book presents a rich variety of tapestries at the Art Institute of Chicago, including medieval, Renaissance, and baroque examples from nearly all of the major European workshops. Among the works here are The Annunciation, a masterpiece designed by an artist in the circle of Mantegna; Autumn and Winter, based on designs by Charles Le Brun; and The Elephant, woven after a design by Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer.

"This dazzling volume is a desideratum for anyone interested in the history of economics, 17th-century Flemish art, the history of tapestries, or the painters who designed them, including Charles Le Brun, Jacob Jordaens, François Boucher, and Edward Burne-Jones."—Renaissance Quarterly
